Drs. Abdel Sawan and Diljon Chahal named Physicians of the Month at Carroll Hospital

Abdel Sawan, M.D., emergency medicine, and Diljon Chahal, M.D., cardiology, were chosen as Carroll Hospital’s June and July Physicians of the Month, respectively.

Affiliated with the hospital for 15 years, Dr. Sawan was honored for his exceptional patient care. During a follow up call with a patient, he recognized that the patient needed immediate medical attention and advised her to come to the hospital’s Emergency Department for emergency care.

“Dr. Sawan’s ability to recognize and quickly assess patients make him a medical expert everyone can depend on. This coupled with his compassionate and high quality care make him an outstanding physician who is to be commended,” said Mark Olszyk, M.D., vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer at Carroll Hospital.

Dr. Chahal has been affiliated with the hospital for close to three years. He was recognized for his medical expertise, professionalism and friendly bedside manner, all of which have allowed his patients to feel at ease in his care.

“Dr. Chahal is an extraordinary cardiologist who we are proud to have as a member of our medical staff team. He continues to impress colleagues with his efficient and high quality patient care,” said Dr. Olszyk.  

Each month, Carroll Hospital recognizes the extraordinary patient care achievements of physicians, as well as advanced practice providers with a program called Physician/Provider WOW Service Awards. From those who are nominated to receive these awards each month, one Physician or Provider of the Month is chosen. And, from a year’s worth of Physician or Provider of the Month winners, one Physician of the Year and one Advanced Practice Provider of the Year is selected.

Community members and hospital team members are encouraged to nominate a medical professional who has demonstrated a special dedication and devotion to patients in a variety of ways.
