The AOF Physician of the Year Award is among the highest honors the Foundation bestows. It recognizes one extraordinary DO each year whose integrity, service, and community involvement elevates him or her as a role model for peers, and motivates others to improve patient and public health.
Robert Danoff, DO, MS, FAAFP, FACOFP, exemplifies these ideals and has been named the 2019 AOF Physician of the Year.
Dr. Danoff is a respected educator and researcher who leads by example and inspires others to follow him. His greatest strengths are “constructing professional relationships and comradery between multidisciplinary groups and members of different specialties, building an atmosphere of career development and a holistic understanding in providing the finest possible medical care,” says Maricel Dela Cruz DO, MPH, who was a chief resident while training under Dr. Danoff.
