Northwestern Medicine cardiologist is American Heart Association Physician of the Year
Date:6/25/2014

Neil J. Stone, MD, a Northwestern Medicine cardiologist for more than four decades, was named the American Heart Association's 2014 Physician of the Year, the organization's honor given annually to a physician who has rendered "outstanding accomplishments."
