Port Huron, MI…Thomas Coury, MD, was named the September 2009 St. Joseph Mercy Patient-Focused Physician of the Month. The St. Joseph Mercy Patient-Focused Physician of the Month award highlights a physician’s commitment to working collaboratively to promote patient and community health through clinical excellence and patient-focused care. Physicians honored with this award must also be one whom St. Joseph Mercy Hospital staff and volunteers would recommend to family and friends in the community.
Dr. Coury is a local surgeon, specializing in urology and provides care to patients through Urology Associates of Port Huron, PC. He was nominated for his unqualified professionalism, expertise and his patient care philosophy.
“When my father was diagnosed with cancer, I wanted him to see the very best,” comments his nominator. “Dr. Coury immediately identified several of his physician peers who he would like involved in my father’s care. Because of their evident respect for Dr. Coury, each of these physicians was eager to help. He then squeezed my father into his busy schedule and took precious time to explain the disease process in easy to understand terms. My father is 80 years old and had numerous questions, all of which Dr. Coury was happy to answer in a kind and reassuring manner. I always knew Dr. Coury was a wonderfully skilled physician, so I didn’t hesitate in my decision of who I would like to treat him. Not only did I refer one of the most precious members of my family to Dr. Coury, I would certainly do so again.”
“Dr. Coury is a terrific asset to our health care community,” comments Peter Karadjoff, St. Joseph Mercy Port Huron (SJMPH) President and CEO. “His outstanding performance has been noted by those who work most closely with him and has been highlighted through his nomination. I wish to extend my sincere appreciation to Dr. Coury for elevating the health status of our community and being a physician whom St. Joseph Mercy Hospital staff and volunteers would recommend to their family and friends.”
“I am honored by this nomination,” comments Thomas Coury, MD. “This is the true reward for being a physician.”
