In fact, of the nation’s 870,000 active physicians and dentists, just five percent consistently received top scores from their patients on sites like Vitals (http://www.vitals.com), qualifying them for this honor in 2012.

Millions of patients go online each year to rate their doctors on various components of care, including accuracy of their diagnosis, the amount of time they spent with the doctor, and the doctor’s bedside manner and follow-up care. Patients’ Choice reviews these rankings and other quality measures to compile its yearly list of award winners.

Dr. Shawn Garber of The New York Bariatric Group commented on the recognition: “I’m so honored to receive an award that’s based on how my patients view the quality of care I provide. I strive each day to exceed my patients’ expectations, and I’m grateful that they’ve recognized my efforts.”
