"I'm Thankful I Have My Wife This Christmas"
This past October a patient came to the Radiology Department for a shoulder
x-ray. Jameel in Radiology noticed when checking the patient in that she
recently had a mammogram the month before. The notes said she was requested
to come back for a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound as there was an
abnormality found on her first mammogram.
Jameel offered to see if the mammogram and ultrasound techs could fit the
patient in while she was here for the x-ray, which they did. The patient
was diagnosed with an aggressive type of breast cancer and thanks to Jameel
and the Suburban Community Hospital team, the patient was immediately
diagnosed, biopsied, and started on treatment.
The husband of this patient called shortly after the patient’s diagnosis
to thank Jameel personally but Jameel had already left for the day. The
husband then stopped by the hospital to finally meet Jameel and thank
him personally for taking such great care of his wife. He said, "Because
of Jameel’s attention to detail, we were able to find the cancer
and get my wife into treatment. I'm thankful that I have my wife this
For going above and beyond and his dedication to patients, Jameel was named
a WOW Award Winner, awarded to those who go beyond expected performance
levels and demonstrate a customer first attitude.
