Looking to thank a referring physician? Consider a Tribute gift


By Julie S. Goldberg, MD

Are you looking for a meaningful way to say thank you to your referring physicians? Has someone provided sage advice or otherwise helped you along in your career? Or are you tired of looking for that perfect gift for someone who has everything? AAD’s Tribute gift program may be the answer.

I find it to be a sincere way to show my gratitude, and as a bonus, because my gift supports AAD’s Camp Discovery I am providing kids with chronic skin conditions with opportunities to develop new relationships and partake in new experiences that build their confidence and overall wellbeing. I feel grateful to have the ability to provide such a transformative experience, and I take pleasure in sharing this joy with the numerous physicians who support my practice with referrals.

Tribute gifts may be made in support of many AAD programs such as the Leadership Institute, the Shade Structure Program, or to provide free skin cancer screenings. Your gift is tax-deductible and can be used to celebrate many of life’s milestones, to honor a mentor or colleague, or to remember someone special.

I love giving Tribute gifts as a way to say thanks to physicians who refer patients to me. The AAD sends them a card letting them know of the donation in their honor—everyone is so appreciative!
