WinWin! With You Applauds Sharon R. Rabinovitz, M.D. and the Mother Baby Unit




Welcome to the WinWin! section. The employees listed below have been recognized by patients, peers and/or managers who want to showcase their wins. Please join us in applauding their great work. If you have a Win, we’d love to share it. Send Wins to http://ow.ly/ZYwi307GSHY.

Sharon Rabinovitz, M.D.

Dr. Rabinovitz received 5 out of 5 stars from a patient. She practices at DeKalb Medical Physicians Group Toco Hills Primary Care.

Comment from patient: “Dr. Rabinovitz is the greatest thing to ever happen to Georgia State University (she was a physician there in the GSU Student Clinic) and to Atlanta period! I followed her from GSU,  to Toco Hills Primary Care. My fellow graduate students kept singing her praises, so I went to see her and I have never looked back since (3 years later!). I have never, ever met a doctor like her (even growing up around so many doctors).”

Mother Baby Unit

The Mother Baby and nurses are being recognized by a first time mom for exhibiting helping hands and compassion.

Comment from patient:I had my first baby at DeKalb Medical and I was treated perfectly. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I have no family here in GA so the nurses had to help me learn the new ins and out of being a mother and they did amazing! The lactation consultants saved my life. I breastfed my baby for a year and I truly can say it was because of DeKalb Medical and their push for breastfeeding/pumping. My room was clean, the staff was amazing and I would recommend it to anyone in the world!”
