Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
Los Angeles based colorectal and general surgeon, Dr. Liza M. Capiendo, has been named the recipient of the Patients’ Choice Award. Given to a select number of America’s favorite doctors, Dr. Capiendo was commended for her exemplary work in the field of medicine and high quality patient care. The Patients' Choice honor reflects the difference Dr. Capiendo is making in the lives of her patients.
“I would like to thank my patients for recognizing me,” Dr. Capiendo said. “This honor is extremely significant for me because it is a testament to the reason I entered medicine from the start. I am committed to making a difference in medicine and my patients’ lives.”
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. Capiendo scored near-perfect ratings 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.
“In light of the fact that very few physicians receive this honor it brings a lot of joy to be recognized as a Patients’ Choice recipient,” states Dr. Capiendo.
