Anastasios Manaris, M.D. named Hellene of the Year by the NYPD St. Paul’s Society


The memorable Annual Scholarships Dinner Dance was hosted by the NYPD’s St. Paul’s Society on Friday October 27, at Leonard’s in Great Neck, and was attended by over 300 guests. The Hellenic – American and Eastern Orthodox Law Enforcement officers honored the NYPD Police Commissioner, Edward A. Caban, as the Man of the Year, and Anastasios Manaris, M.D., as the Hellene of the Year.

Dr. Anastasios Manaris was recognized for his excellence and dedication in providing comprehensive medical care to the various communities of NYC and Long Island as a cardiologist and surgeon for over 20 years. Additionally, Dr. Manaris was also honored for the extensive medical care and information he provides the members of the NYPD in his role as Honorary Surgeon for the law enforcement organization.

As a distinguished graduate of Columbia University, Mount Sinai School of Medicine and numerous residencies and fellowships, Dr. Anastasios Manaris is board certified in internal medicine, cardiology, and cardiac electrophysiology.

True to being honored as the Hellene of the Year by the NYPD, Dr. Manaris highlighted his deep pride in the Greek culture and his Kastorian heritage. Dr. Anastasios Manaris also referenced his grounded upbringing in the Bronx, his dedication to reading and academics, his profound love for his family, and his outreach in communities and the church as essential elements in his continued success as a physician. 

Formed in 1958, the Saint Paul’s Society is an NYPD fraternal organization that brings together officers of the Eastern Orthodox Christian Faith.
