The selected doctors are amongst the honor roll of physicians who have received the highest bedside manner and overall ratings by their patients.
In 2012, more than 200,000 patients across the United States used websites including Vitals.com, PatientsChoice.org, and UCompareHealthCare.com to provide feedback about experiences with their physicians, rating them on various aspects of the care they provide.
