Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
Dr. Allen Kamrava, Los Angeles Colon and Rectal Surgical Associates (http://www.lacolon.com) in Beverly Hills, has recently been awarded the “Top Doctor” Achievement from the website HealthTap. Dr. Allen Kamrava has contributed extensively to the content on the site, providing guidance to several hundred patients, with his answers having been viewed over half-a-million times by Internet users across the globe. This has led to him being awarded as the Top Colorectal Surgeon in the U.S. for Winter 2013.
“I am honored to receive this distinction. HealthTap allows yet another way to assist patients with their questions and further my main priority, which is patient care. People have countless questions about their digestive tract and its associated symptoms. Being able to provide them with some guidance, albeit small, is a very important tool for them. Assisting them with understanding normal versus concerning, that is 'seek help now', is an integral part of being a physician.”
The nominees for the Top Doctor awards are selected after a lengthy review process, which considers the contributions made to the site, the quality of answers provided to questions, and nominations by other physicians and patients.
Much of the health information found on the World Wide Web at large is very general and often is not relevant to a patient and their symptoms. HealthTap.com attempts to address this gap by enabling patients to ask specific questions about their health and a variety of conditions, which will then be answered by doctors who specialize in these areas. The service is free to use, and over 36,000 doctors use the website to answer questions from patients and to provide advice about healthy lifestyles and avoiding illnesses.
