Dr. Murray Feingold
To aid young patients with genetic disorders, Dr. Murray Feingold pioneered a new approach to medical care. In 1982, he founded what is now known as The Genesis Foundation for Children so that physicians could spend more time with their patients and coordinate visits with multiple specialists. Dr. Feingold improved the lives of patients and their families who often had to come to terms with complex medical issues. The difference he made in their lives was profound.
Dr. Feingold had over 50 years of experience in medicine and spent most of his career caring for children at The Feingold Center for Children, now located at Boston’s Children’s Hospital-Waltham. He became the model for delivering compassionate healthcare to children with disabilities. Dr. Feingold also authored two books, published over 200 medical articles, and helped facilitate over 60,000 doctor visits with patients. Dr. Feingold also pioneered the use of radio and television to convey health information to the general public, appearing on WBZ-TV and WBZ News Radio for over 40 years.
