DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., October 24, 2018 – Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center recognized radiation oncologist Dr. Shravan Kandula as the physician of the quarter.
“Dr. Kandula is an exceptional example of how a doctor should treat their patients during their cancer journey. He is compassionate, empathetic and really spends the time needed with patients and their families,” a hospital employee wrote in a nomination form. “You can tell that Dr. Kandula wants the best for his patients and truly cares about the outcome of their treatment and future. He treats patients as a whole person, not just a "cancer patient", which is an extremely valuable asset in any doctor.”
“Dr. Kandula epitomizes what a truly caring doctor should be. He spends time with his patients and always makes them feel important to him. He is dedicated to providing the best possible cancer care and I tell all his patients: You could travel around the world and never find a better doctor that Dr. Kandula,” another employee wrote in a nomination form.
Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center CEO Ed Noseworthy shared this sentiment as he presented Kandula with this award.
“Dr. Kandula embodies the mission of our hospital by the way he cares for our patients,” Noseworthy said. “Dr. Kandula is compassionate and dedicated to both patients and staff. He is involved with community activities, and consistently goes above and beyond in all that is asked of him. We are truly blessed to have him as part of our radiation oncology team.”
