Each year, the Vascular Birthmarks Foundation (VBF) presents their Physician of the Year (POY) award to a doctor who has been nominated by patients served through the VBF community. The award is presented at their annual conference. This year the award will be presented at the Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC on Saturday, October 6, 2018 at 8:30am.
The annual award is for outstanding service in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular birthmarks.
VBF is honored to announce the 2018 recipient of the Physician of the Year award is Dr. Teresa O of the Vascular Birthmark Institute of New York. Dr. O has been a key diagnostician and treatment specialist for over 10 years.
The families who nominated Dr O stated that she had “changed our lives for the better” and also “was so kind, considerate, and explained our options so that we could make the best decision for our daughter’s hemangioma.”
Congratulations to Dr. Teresa O, the 2018 VBF Physician of the Year.
