The health of my patients is paramount, so it’s good to know that they are satisfied with their level of care.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2013
Payman Khorrami, M.D., a board-certified gastroenterologist at La Peer Health Systems in Los Angeles, has been recognized as a Patients’ Choice Award recipient due to his commitment to and exemplary work in patient care. Voted by his patients, Dr. Khorrami received more than just positive reviews - his patients gave him rave reviews.
“This is such a great honor for me as a physician,” said Dr. Khorrami. “To be honored for my work and service is why I’ve remained dedicated to the profession of medicine. I am able to connect with my patients and provide them medical intervention when they need it most.”
Every month, more than 200,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their experiences with their physicians and dentists. They provide overall opinions and rate various components of care, such as bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, and courtesy of office staff. The Patients’ Choice Award is bestowed on physicians and dentists who have received near perfect scores, as voted by their patients.
While many physicians receive positive reviews from their patients, the Patients’ Choice Awards highlight and recognize doctors who have received rave reviews. In 2012, of the nation's 830,000 active doctors, only 5 percent were accorded this honor. Therefore, this recognition is reserved for doctors who make a significant difference in the lives of their patients.
“I take a comprehensive approach when it comes to my patients’ gastrointestinal health,” said Dr. Khorrami. “The health of my patients is paramount, so it’s good to know that they are satisfied with their level of care.”
