Chitrachedu Naganna, M.D., cardiology, was chosen as Carroll Hospital Center's January Physician of the Month. Affiliated with Carroll Hospital Center for 38 years, Dr. Naganna was nominated for his medical expertise and outstanding care of two patients who required permanent pacemaker implants.
"Dr. Naganna's care far exceeded everyone's expectations that day," Mark Olszyk, M.D., Carroll Hospital Center's vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer, said. "His actions ensured these patients received the best care in a timely fashion and are a testament to his dedication, which makes him highly deserving of this award."
