Doctors' Day at UF Health banner with Mark Bleiweis, M.D. and grateful patient Sage Pridemore

Sage Pridemore calls his doctor his hero.

Since he was 5 days old, Sage has undergone three heart surgeries. Watch as he reads a surprise letter for his physician, Mark Bleiweis, M.D., a UF Health congenital heart surgeon.

Mark Mason thanks his doctor for giving hope.

After suffering from early-onset Parkinson’s disease for a number of years, Mark Mason found his hope in Kelly Foote, M.D., a UF Health neurosurgeon.


This Doctors’ Day, we invite you to make a gift in honor of your UF Health physician and write a special message of appreciation. We will deliver your message to your physician on Doctors’ Day, March 30.

Your gift of any amount will honor that special physician who has cared for you, as well as support the most critical needs of the hospital.

Thank you for your considerate support.
