December 28, 2012 - Among the select few physicians honored with the prestigious Patients' Choice Award this year is Dr. Sean Behnam from Santa Monica California, a prominent Hair Transplant Specialist.

In fact, of the nation's 870,000 active physicians and dentists, just five percent consistently received top scores from their patients. 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. Sean Behnam commented on this monumental recognition: "I'm so honored to receive an award that is based on patients' view of the quality of care I have provided. I strive to exceed my patients' expectations every day, and I'm grateful that my patients have recognized my efforts."
