 Wednesday, JUNE 8th, 2012 – Arizona OBGYN Affiliates (AOA) proudly announces Frederick D. Fingerhut, MD as Teacher of the Year by St. Joseph’s Medical Center. Dr. Fingerhut is an Obstetrician and Gynecologist at AOA, in the Estrella Women’s Center branch and has been in private practice for over 34 years. He attended Miami University and finished medical school at TAE Ohio State University. His internship and residency led him to St. Joe’s Hospital in central Phoenix. He has been a principle investigator for various clinical studies for the past 26 years and continues to teach family medicine residents throughout the valley.


Dr. Fingerhut’s colleagues recognize him as a family man, brilliant doctor and dedicated educator. During the award ceremony on June 8th, Drs. Stephanie Augustine and Greg Heller spoke of his successes and their personal experiences working with him. “His patient rapport is second to none. His patients LOVE him and were constantly begging him not to retire during my rotation with him. Thankfully for his patients, he obliged and will continue to work part-time,” stated Dr. Augustine. His most celebrated attribute among his students is his attention to the individual patient. Dr. Fingerhut acknowledges the usefulness of guidelines but emphasizes the needs and desires of the patient. “Dr. Fingerhut has always stood out as one of the best, and we would like to thank him for his many years of dedicated teaching to our program,” said Dr. Greg Heller of St. Joseph’s Medical Center.
