Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) July 26, 2013 -- Dr. Zuri A. Murrell, a board-certified colorectal surgeon in Los Angeles at La Peer Health Systems, has been honored as a Patients’ Choice Award recipient.

“I am deeply flattered that my patients are satisfied with the care I have provided them,” said Dr. Murrell. “Making sure my patients have access to the safest, top-of-the-line procedures is important to me, and I strive to give them the best possible care and attention.”
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. Murrell scored high marks in the categories of: bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, follow-up care, office staff's courtesy and overall patient opinion.
