Dr. Samuel Kashani, a board-certified general and bariatric surgeon in Los Angeles at La Peer Health Systems, has been honored as a Patients’ Choice Award recipient. Given to a select number of America’s favorite doctors, Dr. Kashani was commended for his exemplary work and the difference he is making in the lives of his patients.
"My patients undergo life-changing procedures, so making sure they are in the best possible care is always my biggest concern," said Dr. Kashani, who specializes in weight-loss surgery, such as the gastric sleeve and gastric bypass procedures. "I’m so grateful that my patients are happy with the services I have provided them."
The Patients' Choice Award is given to doctors who received rave reviews for their work and dedication in their medical field. As the honor roll of America’s favorite doctors, this honor is bestowed on doctors by their patients. In 2013 alone, more than 200,000 patients across America provided reviews and feedback regarding their personal treatment and experiences with their doctors.
Dr. Kashani scored high marks in the categories of bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, follow-up care, office staff's courtesy and overall patient opinion. Of the 830,000 doctors currently practicing in the U.S., just 5 percent received the Patients’ Choice Award in 2012. As part of this honor, recipients are included on the Patients’ Choice website, a resource in which patients can locate physicians providing quality care.
"My passion is helping patients better their lives, resulting in higher self-confidence and overall good health," said Dr. Kashani. "The fact that my patients feel I have helped them accomplish these goals is an incredibly moving experience."
