Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) April 27, 2012
Dr. Tory McJunkin, double-board certified interventional pain physician and anesthesiologist at Arizona Pain Specialists (http://www.arizonapain.com), received two prestigious awards for 2011 – The Compassionate Doctor Recognition Award, and the Patient’s Choice Award. These awards originate from the website Vitals.com - a free informational site where patients can rate physicians based on their opinion and experience.
“I am honored to receive these awards,” says McJunkin. “Every day I strive to fulfill our mission at Arizona Pain Specialists – to treat my patients as if they were my own family.”
The Patients’ Choice Award is given to the top percentile of physicians that have been rated by patients on Vitals.com for the most recent award period. Only doctors with rave reviews and near perfect scores across the board receive this award. As a result, PatientsChoice.org was created to showcase the Patient’s Choice Award recipients, highlighting these physicians for their outstanding patient care. The Compassionate Doctor Recognition award is based solely on independent patient ratings, with a minimum requirement of 4 ratings, in which the quality indicator regarding bedside manner needs to be 3.5 stars or more.
Ratings from vitals.com generate from online, monthly feedback from over 200,000 patients across the country. Patients report on the physician’s bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, courtesy of office staff, and overall experience. With reviews totaling hundreds of thousands of patient opinions for 2011, very few receive unanimous rave reviews. Of the country’s 830,000 active physicians, only 5% were awarded this honor for 2011.
“These awards are so very deserving for Dr. McJunkin,” says Arizona Pain Specialists CEO Joe Carlon. “He works tirelessly for his patients and for Arizona Pain Specialists, and he has always put the needs of his patients and his staff before his own.”
The team at Arizona Pain Specialists works together to provide relief for various types of chronic pain – including back, neck, facial, joint, hip, and cancer pain, as well as other ailments. These specialists work with one mission in mind: “to change lives by delivering world-class pain management care that we would want for our own mom and dad.”
Dr. Tory McJunkin and Dr. Paul Lynch founded Arizona Pain Specialists to specialize in pain medicine. They started the practice together after a close family member battled severe, debilitating pain. Arizona Pain Specialists remain passionate about treating those who suffer from chronic pain – with the ultimate goal of providing hope and restoring life.
