Dr. Donnenfeld Receives “Distinguished Service Award”
Dr. Donnenfeld was honored to receive the 2010 Distinguished Service Award from the Nassau Surgical Society. The Society’s decision to give him the award was based on his significant contribution to the community as well as the leadership he demonstrates within the ophthalmology profession. Dr. Donnenfeld traveled to Yerevan, Armenia to perform glaucoma surgery in a population that was without access to quality care. He has also spent a lot of time fostering the Nassau Surgical Society’s Annual Clinic Day, which is an opportunity for doctors to share new ideas and information with each other. These philanthropic efforts – as well as Dr. Donnenfeld’s “dignity, good grace and humor” – were recognized by the Society.
