Physician, Ochsner Health System, New Orleans, LA
A former patient explains why she nominated Dr. McCormick as a Hospital Hero.
Dr. McCormick, a physician with Ochsner Health System in New Orleans, Louisiana, was submitted by one of her patients, Connie, who gives some very good reasons why Mary is deserving of our Hospital Heroes spotlight: "She is intelligent and up on the latest medical info. She is observant, listens, and is patient. She is tenacious, extremely knowledgeable about the complexity of the female body, and readily works with the patient for best healthcare/medical solutions. She is willing to monitor, acknowledges the benefit of having a patient who wants to use healthy eating, weight control, and exercise, along with medication, to improve health." Thank you Mary for all of your great work!
