New York, NY (PRWEB) January 22, 2013
The leading national online ratings guide for patients, Vitals.com, has selected Charles K. Herman, M.D., F.A.C.S., as a Top 10 Doctor in New York City's Upper East Side. New York's Upper East Side includes the prestigious addresses along Fifth Avenue and Park Avenue, including Dr. Herman's office and surgery center located at 1050 Fifth Avenue along Manhattan's Museum Mile. Dr. Charles K. Herman has been recognized by several national surveys in addition to Vitals.com, as a leader in his field and a favorite among patients seeking cosmetic surgery, including US News and World Report, Castle Connolly, Patient's Choice Award, and the Consumers' Research Council. In addition to his Fifth Avenue office, Dr. Herman practices in East Stroudsburg, PA, serves as Chief Medical Executive of Surgical Services, Chairman of Surgery, and Chief of Plastic Surgery, at the award-winning hospital Pocono Medical Center, and is on the faculty of both The Commonwealth Medical College and Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He is the author of over 50 journal articles and textbook chapters and the editor of two plastic surgery textbooks. His surgery on an injured American soldier received international attention and was featured on Discovery Channel's American Chopper television show, being viewed by over 4 million viewers around the world. He serves as Chief Consulting Editor of Thieme Publishing's plastic surgery division and on the Board of Advanced Healthcare Partners, one of the healthcare industry's top management and consulting companies.
Top 10 Doctors are chosen by patients who visit Vitals in search of a new doctor, totaling 120 million people each year. Vitals visitors also leave ratings and reviews for their current doctors on various components of care: bedside manner, follow-up care, ease of appointment setting, courtesy of office staff, and overall appointment experience. Vitals analyzed these patient-provided ratings in order to identify those physicians within a certain specialty and neighborhood who are consistently rated highly. Only about 20,000 doctors – less than 3 percent of all doctors nationally – met the criteria for Top 10 Doctor honors in 2012. The winners represent 39 specialties and more than 2,500 neighborhoods across the US. Patients who see the Top 10 Doctor icon on a doctor’s Vitals profile can feel confident that doctor has been vetted through the experiences of their fellow patients and neighbors, whose testimonials attest to the doctor’s superior care.
