Port Huron, MI…Thomas Mullally, MD, was named the October 2010 St. Joseph Mercy Patient-Focused Physician of the Month. The St. Joseph Mercy Patient-Focused Physician of the Month award highlights a physician’s commitment to working collaboratively to promote patient and community health through clinical excellence and patient-focused care.

He was nominated for his kind and caring demeanor, friendliness and professionalism toward staff, and his unwavering commitment to the care of his patients.

He will go out of his way to say ‘Good morning’ and ‘Have a nice day’ when he rounds on his patients at the hospital,” comments his nominator. “Dr. Mullally treats his patients as if they are a part of his family. He will take extra time at the bedside to answer all the patient’s and family’s questions; and before leaving the room he asks if there are any other questions he can answer. He is responsive to both his patients and their families as well as the nursing staff and is always available to answer any questions even after he’s left the hospital. I would refer friends or family to Dr. Mullally because of the respect and the dedication he shows to patients in meeting all their medical needs.”
