2021 National Doctors' Day

March 30, 2021, is National Doctors' Day. National Doctors’ Day honors physicians across the U.S. for their dedication to their patients and commitment to improving health. Cancer does not stop for a pandemic, and at Massey, neither do our doctors.

HONOR YOUR DOCTOR WITH A GIFT TODAY

March 30 is National Doctors' Day!

Your doctor is more than a caregiver. At VCU Massey Cancer Center, our doctors are champions, confidants and, through challenging times, heroes.

National Doctors’ Day honors physicians across the U.S. for their dedication to their patients and commitment to improving health. Cancer does not stop for a pandemic, and at Massey, neither do our doctors.

At Massey, our physician-scientists share a commitment to intellectual curiosity, scientific expertise and personalized patient care. They conduct basic, clinical and population sciences research to discover better ways to prevent, diagnose, treat and control all types of cancer — and save and improve lives. As caregivers at a safety-net hospital, their commitment means the highest-quality care for all patients, regardless of their ability to pay.

HONOR YOUR DOCTOR WITH A GIFT TODAY

In our patients' own words

No one knows better the personal impact our doctors have than their patients and patient families. Take it from Ginny Graef, a patient of Gordon Ginder, M.D., professor of internal medicine and director emeritus:

Every time I saw [Dr. Ginder] at the clinic, or he stopped by to see me during one of my many hospital stays, I never felt rushed or felt that he had anywhere else to be, other than right there, treating me and listening to me. It was as if I was his only patient. He is truly an amazing physician and healer.

Or from Farrah Massenburg, who discovered her cancer while breastfeeding her daughter, and who credits Hetal Vachhani, M.D. (H.S.’11/M), for empowering her:

The first moment when I spoke with Dr. Vachhani, she saw me as a person, not as a sick person and not as a cancer patient. She saw me as a person. Everyone at Massey is so amazing and so caring. The support and love that I have seen at Massey has given me a lot of motivation and encouragement and the continued support in my continuous journey that I have now.
