The Roanoker - July/August 2020 - 34

CARILION CLINIC PLASTIC & RECONSTRUCTIVE
SURGERY; (540) 224-5170
Nominated for Reconstructive Surgeon by Lee Colls
" Dr. Moyer is the most professional and humble
surgeon I've ever met. He has worked with me
to make sure that I regain all my confidence in
my body that I had before cancer attacked. He is
patient when I ask ridiculous questions, concerned
when his patients are upset and a leader to all
the residents under his care. He deserves to be
recognized for so many qualities too numerous to
mention. Our running joke is, who doesn't want their
plastic surgeon to be a perfectionist?! "

VA 24012; (540) 385-8720
(SOUTH CAMPUS): 5647 STARKEY ROAD, ROANOKE, VA
24018; (540) 777-8300
Nominated for Elder Care by Jennifer Percell
" With the new COVID-19 threat we have been
faced with lately, we have seen Stacey Mulkey,
the Director of Nursing at Friendship South, in her
element. You can see her ER Crisis Nurse Mode
take control. She has been the voice of reason and
guidance for many. She has kept the crew united
and focused in the building. It's been amazing to
witness! "

Ross W. Murchison, MD

CARILION CLINIC INTERNAL MEDICINE; (540) 224-5170
Nominated for Internal Medicine by Karen Tate
" Dr. Ross Murchison has been wonderful and the
man has more patience than any physician I have
ever known. He is a very caring and has really been
very good at helping me with my health issues. He
helped me lose over 36 pounds and ... is so kind
and caring and has really made a big difference
in my life. He has helped me understand all my
medical conditions and taken as much time as
needed to explain things to me. He never makes me
feel rushed when I am in the office. This man is a
wonderful physician [and has] a fantastic bedside
manner. They broke the mold when they made Dr.
Murchison. "

Vashist V. Nobbee, MD, FACP
LEWISGALE PHYSICIANS

Nominated for Internal Medicine by Carolyn Basham
" Dr. Nobbee is the very best physician in the
Roanoke Valley. He possesses medical knowledge,
far above any doctor I have ever encountered.
He is very patient, kind and so considerate of his
patients. There simply is none better than he. We
are so fortunate to have a doctor of his caliber in
our area. "
Nominated for Family Medicine by Jeff Martin
" ... My story is of a professional, caring and
considerate doctor who exhibits all the qualities
of doctors from yesteryear with home visits,
knowing one's patients by name, overwhelming
flexibility in providing time, care and concern even
on short notice. When was the last time you could
describe a doctor and his/her staff for a level

34

JULY/AUGUST 2020

of professionalism and consideration reflected
in now over 20 years of NEVER waiting beyond
five to 10 minutes of an appointment time? How
often is a doctor held in such high regard that his
profile is one of being professional, caring, timely,
knowledgeable and emotionally supportive? Have
you ever been treated by a doctor whose medical
knowledge and recall has never failed to provide
a comprehensive and patient description of a
condition and potential treatment ... Beyond all this
is an ability to listen and give his patients the time
to understand-in layman's terms, the needs and
reasons for his recommended treatment. We feel
truly blessed to have had the care of a man whom
we believe is everything a doctor should be. "
Nominated for Family Medicine by Robin Roth
" I don't really have the words to express my deepest
gratitude and appreciation for this phenomenal
physician in our area. Dr. Vashist Nobbee is the
doctor you would wish to have for every patient
in the need of compassionate, accurate care. Dr.
Nobbee has been my primary care physician for
over 30 years. Ten years ago, when my beloved
son passed away, he saved my life on more than
one occasion as I became seriously ill. More
than his excellent diagnostic skills, he is the
most compassionate human I have ever had the
privilege to know. ... he listens more than he talks.
He is never condescending when you voice your
concerns regarding any aspect of your life. The
term 'Holistic Physician' captures his practice and
care beautifully. He does not push you to accept
treatment that you have researched and decided
is not right for you. ... I am a registered nurse of 33
years of active practice and have never hesitated
to speak with Dr. Nobbee about anything that is
affecting my life. ... He is a hero to all who have the
wonderful privilege to be under his care. Listening
and kindness set him apart. "

Elizabeth Pentecost
ARCH ROANOKE

Nominated for Other-Homeless Services by
Anonymous
" Since COVID-19, Elizabeth has been working a
minimum of 80 hours per week, fighting for the
safety of her residents at Trust House, her clients
in Supportive Housing in our community and for
her staff who are still providing services during
this pandemic. During this pandemic, a lot of focus
has been on doctors and nurses, policemen and
grocery store clerks, and rightly so. But people like
Elizabeth are still fighting to save our community,
even when they aren't recognized by social media. "

Jack Perkins, MD

CARILION ROANOKE MEMORIAL HOSPITAL;
(540) 981-7000
Nominated for ER Services by Anonymous
" Dr. Perkins started the Compress and Shock
Foundation, which trains people in CPR, including
use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED).
He not only helps people at the worst time of their
lives, but has also tried to systematically improve
the outcomes of these worst times. By educating
and training people on how to initiate the chain of
survival for cardiac arrest, he is raising awareness
of a major public health issue. "
