I would like to nominate Dr. Stephen E. Landay for the Spirit of Gainesville award in the Medicine category. Dr. Landay is a Pediatrician in the Gainesville area and has blessed children from newborns until they leave for college for the past 30+ years. As an employee, I see on a daily basis how humble he is when told what an amazing and compassionate physician he is. Those that benefit from his thorough care are his patients and their parents. He listens and goes above and beyond to give the best care. He stays late on many nights making personal phone calls to the families of children he is worried about and even writes hand written thank you or congratulation cards when he hears about something one of his patients have done that is positive in the community. He is very interested in what his patients do for extracurricular activites and even attends their sporting events and musical concerts when time permits. Dr. Landay has past patients that come to see him which is an indication that he has made a difference in their lives. As long as Dr. Landay continues to practice medicine, is how long his patients and their parents will benefit from his excellent care.
About Dr. Stephen E. Landay
Years in Gainesville: 35
Although medicine has changed over time, Dr. Landay has stayed true to what matters to him the most, his patients.
Dr. Landay's office is involved with the March of Dimes. Even though our office is small, over 100 people are recruited to join our team, raise money for our local March of Dimes and walk the 8.7 mile walk.
Thank you for considering him as a candidate for this Spirit of Gainesville award.
