Jaswinder Singh, MD, medical oncologist/hematologist and medical director of clinical research at Research Medical Center, was recently honored with the Patients’ Choice award.
Patients’ Choice recognition reflects the difference a particular physician has made in the lives of their patients. The honor is bestowed to physicians who have received near perfect scores as voted by patients.
Every month, more than 60,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their experiences with their doctors. They rate various components such as bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, courtesy of office staff and overall opinions.
While physicians generally receive positive reviews from their patients, only a select few receive uniformly rave reviews across the board. Of those who have received rave reviews with near perfect scores by their patients are awarded this honor.
In fact, of the nation’s 720,000 active physicians, less than six percent were accorded this honor by their patients in 2009.
