Glendale, AZ (PRWEB) October 15, 2012
Dr. Patrick W. Hogan, D.O., double-board certified interventional pain physician and anesthesiologist at Arizona Pain Specialists (http://www.arizonapain.com), has received a Patients’ Choice Award for 2012. This award is merited from online patient reviews submitted through the free informational website, Vitals.com – where patients rate physicians based on their opinion and experience.
“I'm so honored to receive an award that’s based on how my patients view the quality of care I provide,” says Dr. Hogan. “I strive to exceed my patients’ expectations, and I’m grateful that they have recognized my efforts.”
Such an honor can only be awarded to a physician who consistently receives top scores from their patients. Only five percent of the nation's 870,000 active physicians receive such high scores on websites like Vitals.com. The scores are calculated from millions of patients who have submitted an evaluation based on various components of their overall experience with that physician, including: the doctor’s accuracy of their diagnosis, the amount of time they spent with the doctor, the doctor's bedside manner, and follow-up care. The Patients’ Choice organization then reviews the rankings, along with other quality measures, to determine an annual list of award winners. All winners are featured on PatientsChoice.org, which was created to showcase these award recipients, and highlights the Patients’ Choice physicians for their extraordinary patient care and expertise.
Dr. Hogan treats complex pain patients with a holistic approach, and specializes in difficult cases where other pain doctors may have not achieved complete success. Hogan chose to specialize in pain medicine while completing a clinical rotation at the Cleveland Clinic’s Pain Management Center. It was there that Hogan witnessed first-hand how modern technology, cutting-edge research, education, and a multi-disciplinary approach can be used to improve patients’ quality of life.
“Dr. Hogan is a perfect complement to the comprehensive, patient-centered approach found at Arizona Pain Specialists,” says Dr. Paul Lynch, M.D., co-founder of Arizona Pain Specialists.
