Port Huron, MI…B. Ramesh Reddy, MD, was named the August 2013 St. Joseph Mercy Patient-Focused Physician. The St. Joseph Mercy Patient-Focused Physician award highlights a physician’s commitment to working collaboratively to promote patient and community health through clinical excellence and patient-focused care.

As a cardiologist, Dr. Reddy provides care and treatment to heart patients of all ages through Cardiology Associates of Port Huron, PC. He was nominated for his ability to work generously in a patient-centered care environment with clinical staff.
“During a weekend, Dr. Reddy contacted a unit secretary to obtain some very important patient information that he needed to complete rounds the following morning. Upon his arrival the next day, he provided a most gracious compliment to the staff member,” comments his nominator. “Dr. Reddy continually receives gracious compliments from both the floor staff as well as his patients. He engages with staff providing education as needed, and is a great role model for other physicians. I would recommend Dr. Reddy because his bedside manner is so understanding and caring. As a cardiac care nurse, it is clear that when a patient is comfortable with his/her physician both patient care and safety are vastly improved.”
