Congratulations to radiation oncologist Dr. Bhisham Chera for scoring in the top quartile nationally on a patient satisfaction survey. One survey question asked whether patients would recommend their physician to friends and family, and more than 94% of Dr. Chera’s patients answered “Yes, definitely!” Dr. Chera received a 2015 UNC Health Care and UNC Faculty Physicians Award for Carolina Care Excellence for his efforts.
Meanwhile, radiation oncologist Dr. Mahesh Varia has also been honored at a ceremony for the UNC Health Care Employee Ambassadors. Ambassadors are UNC Healthcare employees who perform more than 50 hours a year of community service. Dr. Varia has for many years done volunteer work in remote international locations through the Association of Indian Physicians of Northern Ohio.
