MDVIP Ambassador Stacy Cronin
Stacy Cronin, who works for MDVIP affiliate Dr. Matthew Kulka in Longhorne, PA, is an MDVIP Ambassador for going above and beyond the call of duty and making her patients feel welcome, valued and loved.
"The person who is most impactful in my life is my mother. She is both a single mom and a pastor. From a young age, she imparted the virtues of living by the golden rule which taught me to treat others the way I want to be treated. She made me consider people’s circumstances, their unknown struggles and paths they have walked in their lives. She would tell me that always being kind can make all the difference in someone’s day. Our patients deserve kindness, and I try to deliver that every day. Having worked for Dr. Kulka for over seven years, he is a devoted physician and great boss and I am fortunate to come to work every day loving my job. This is due in part to the values my mother taught me.” -- Stacy Cronin
Stacy has been my medical assistant for over 5 years. She embraced the MDVIP model with enthusiasm and passion. She gone beyond her expected position by volunteering to appear at most educational meetings during our transition and to speak individually with hundreds of patients. She stays late and starts early without being asked. She gives comfort to our patients by being an extension of their support system as a staff member, friend, and additional person to cry and laugh with. Stacy has visited patients in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and in homes on her own time. I was touched when she made a blanket with her daughter for a long-time patient that is going through a difficult time with cancer. She takes her position seriously and understands that making a difference in people’s lives is a true honor. I do not go through a day without hearing "Stacy is the best". It is easy for me to realize that our patients and I are the honored ones to have Stacy in our lives.
