Patients Honor Dr. Michael Burgdorf for Compassion
February 26, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsDr. Michael Burgdorf, a plastic surgeon in Nashville, Tenn., has been honored with a Patients' Choice award and a Compassionate Doctor Certification for the third year in a row.
Only the top 5 percent of the nation's 870,000 active physicians received the Patients' Choice award, and the top 3 percent received the Compassionate Doctor Certification in 2013.
The Compassionate Doctor certification is part of the Patients' Choice recognition program, where patients rate and vote for their favorite doctors.
Each year, nearly 100 million patients across the U.S. access websites like Vitals and UCompareHealthCare to provide feedback about experiences with their physicians. They are asked 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.
Only those physicians with near-perfect overall and bedside manner scores, as voted by their patients, are selected for the Patients' Choice and Compassionate Doctor recognitions.
Dr. Michael Burgdorf commented on the recognition: "This is quite an honor for me. I am very pleased to have been selected and grateful to my patients who went out of their way to rate me and give me positive reviews."
Following the publication of Dr. Michael Burgdorf's selection for the Compassionate Doctor Award, American Registry seconded the honor and added Dr. Burgdorf to The Registry™ of Business Excellence. An exclusive recognition plaque has been designed to commemorate the honor. The doctor's custom wall plaque is shown here.
