The WAFP presents the Family Physician of the Year award to recognize a physician who provides outstanding service to patients and their communities with compassionate, comprehensive and caring medical service on a continual basis. All while demonstrating balance between career and family. As a healer, Dr. Dryer is a respected role model in the science and art of family medicine to colleagues, medical students, and residents.
