He received the Fellows Award from Jewish Hospital in 1991, the Alumni/Faculty Award from Washington University Medical Center Alumni Association in 1995, the Distinguished Service Award from Washington University Department of Medicine in 2002, and, in 2010, a scholarship was established in his honor at Washington University School of Medicine by the alumni association. In addition, he served on the board (one term as chairman) of Washington University Medical School Alumni Association, the board (and chairman) of the Jewish Family and Children’s Services, head of Health and Hospital Division of St. Louis Community Fund, and he was a member of the American College of Physicians, the American Medical Association, Southern Medical Association, Missouri State Medical Association, St. Louis Internists Club, the St. Louis Club, the St. Louis Society of Internal Medicine, and the St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society.
