some kind of pregnancy food
issue. ... Maggie (weighing only 1

care of the doctors and nurses

Binns-Loveman, with the help of
respiratory therapy, spent hours
trying to get blood out of her lungs
and oxygen in."

Nominated for Family Medicine by Molly

"I have so much gratitude for Dr.
Del Bolin for providing a longoverdue diagnosis that enabled
me to begin a whole new life. ... He
was the first doctor to recognize
I had childhood developmental
problems and didn't have a fully
formed hip and what I did have was
destroyed by osteoarthritis! ... Dr.
Bolin's professionalism, kindness
and commitment to treating me
like I was family have given me a
new lease on life. ... I can't thank
Dr. B enough for the way he has
impacted my life for the better."

the older ones like my mother. ...
Her condition is very painful, but
Daymeon is always caring and
gentle when treating her. ... The
medical world would have been at a
true loss had he not chosen to be
an LPN."

"... I became one of over 300,000

Coobs looked at me and said 'Let's
take more pics of your hip' ... In a
month, I received the correct size
hip ... I took my first hike in many
years with my family and cried when

living with less pain and replaced
the cane with a smile!"
