Sally M. Pinkstaff, M.D., Ph.D., the director of the Diabetes Resource Center at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore and a member of the Division of Endocrinology in the Department of Medicine at Sinai, has been honored with a Compassionate Doctor of 2012 Award.
More than 200,000 patients from around the United States vote each month by providing online feedback about their personal encounters with their doctors and dentists to the Patients’ Choice organization, which was established to highlight the best doctors in America. The group then combines all of the ratings and opinions to come up with its yearly list.
Pinkstaff, also a recipient of this award last year, is an endocrinologist who specializes in geriatric medicine. She has been practicing medicine for more than 33 years, and earned her medical degree in internal medicine and her doctorate in medical physiology. She has been the director of Sinai’s Diabetes Resource Center since its creation in 2008.
