I can’t begin to tell you how much this recognition means to me as a physician.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 23, 2013
Board-certified urologist Premal J. Desai, M.D., of La Peer Health Systems of Los Angeles, has been named a Patients’ Choice Award recipient. As voted by his patients, Dr. Desai received more than just positive reviews -- rave reviews.
“I can’t begin to tell you how much this recognition means to me as a physician,” Dr. Desai said. “To be honored for my work and service provides a constant reminder as to why I’ve remained committed to the medical profession for so many years. It’s because of my patients and the service I am able to provide to them.”
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 every year many physicians receive positive reviews from their patients, the Patients’ Choice Awards highlight and recognize doctors that have overwhelmingly positive reviews. This recognition is reserved for doctors who make a significant difference in the lives of their patients. In 2012, of the nation's 830,000 active doctors, only 5% were accorded this honor by their patients.
“It is my belief that providing the most compassionate care and working with my patients in a team approach is paramount to being a skilled physician and necessary in order for patients to receive quality care,” said Dr. Desai.
