Doc makes pres

Three cheers to Dr. Suhail Raoof, chief of pulmonary and critical care medicine at New York Methodist Hospital who was recently installed as the president of the American College of Chest Physicians. The chest man obtained his medical degree from Maulana Azad Medical College in India and completed his residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, followed by a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at SUNY Stony Brook. He eventually found his niche at NYM in the Comprehensive Lung Cancer Center. “I am grateful to New York Methodist Hospital for providing the environment to fulfill my academic dreams and aspirations.” Dr. Dosik, chairman of internal medicine at the hospital told Standing O, “The hospital is honored and incredibly proud, but knowing Suhail, we are not surprised that he has reached such great heights.” Standing O isn’t surprised, either — and congrats are in order!
