ARMONK, N.Y. -- Armonk resident Dr. David Cziner, a WESTMED Medical Group board-certified cardiologist, has won the Dr. Leonard Finkelstein Excellence Award for 2013.
The annual Excellence award is presented to the physician who is voted by his or her peers to embody the ideals of a WESTMED physician, demonstrating the highest level of clinical quality with compassion and selfless devotion to patient care.
“Dr. Cziner is described by his colleagues as ‘the gold standard’. One WESTMED colleague said, “He’s smart, calm, reassuring, warm, relaxed, evidence-based, and a real doctor’s doctor. You know when you send him patients, they will get the best possible care, delivered in a warm, supportive fashion.”
Dr. Cziner was awarded his medical degree from New York University School of Medicine and completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at Bellevue Hospital Center where he went on to complete a fellowship in cardiology.
He was a senior fellow in non-invasive cardiology
at NYU’s Tisch Hospital. He is chief emeritus of the Department of Cardiology at White Plains Hospital and is also on staff at Greenwich Hospital.
The award is the namesake of the deceased Dr. Leonard Finkelstein, a founding member of The Westchester Medical Group, who practiced internal medicine in the area for more than 35 years.
