Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
Dr. David J. Parks, a board-certified ophthalmologist 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. Parks was commended for his exemplary work and the difference he is making in the lives of his patients.
“To receive a Patients’ Choice Award is an outstanding honor,” Dr. Parks said. “I deal with a part of the body that is intricate and delicate, therefore I have to ensure that I utilize quality medical practices and really put my patients’ health at top priority – after all my patients’ vision is in my hands.”
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. Parks 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 patients are important to me as well as their visual health. I have a personal stake because I am 100% committed to those I serve,” said Dr. David J. Parks. “To know that my patients have acknowledged my commitment through this recognition is very meaningful.”
