“While she was a resident, Dr. Sawchyn was well-respected and loved by her patients.  During her residency, she received a Robin D. Howson Housestaff Humanism Award for routinely exhibiting attributes of ethics and integrity, and caring, compassion for patients and patients’ family members.  She was an outstanding clinician and we are thrilled to welcome her back.  She will be a tremendous addition to the Glaucoma service and faculty.”
