Martin J. Sheehy M.D. Boston University Medical School Class of 1966 Board Certified-Internist, Pulmonologist, Gerontologist, Family Practice 50 Years of practicing the art and science of Medicine Congratulations Marty! Love, Pat Dad, Congratulations on 50 years in medicine. As a daughter, I have been a witness to your work as a doctor, I’ve watched you continuously approach medicine with a sense of dedication and wonder. I’ve seen you tear up when talking about a struggling patient. I’ve listened as you’ve patiently helped friends understand a diagnosis or how to navigate the medical world. I know I only see a fraction of what your patients experience, but you have taught me the value of hard work, dedication and compassion. You are a great role model for me and my kids. Love, Chrissie Congratulations for 50 years of love and dedication to the practice of medicine! Love, Missie “Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity.” – Hippocrates Celebrating 50 years of dedication to your patients, your community and your country. Thank you for being a role model of excellence and service to others. Love, Susan, Dan, Katie, and Daniel
