Dr. Palmieri Selected for the 2011 Patients' Choice Award
Congratulations to Dr. Ana Palmieri on being selected for the 2011 Patients' Choice Award. The Patients' Choice is given to physicians as a reflection of patients' continued appreciation and praise for the quality of care and service given by their provider.
Every month, more than 200,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their doctor experiences. They rate various components of the care they receive, such as bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, follow-up care, ease of appointment setting, and courtesy of office staff. They also share their overall opinions.
Over the course of 2011, hundreds of thousands of patients' reviews were written and shared. While physicians generally receive positive feedback from their patients, only a select few consistently receive rave reviews. Of those with high praise, only physicians like Dr. Palmieri, with near perfect scores, have been voted by their patients for this honor.
In fact, of the nation's 720,000 active physicians, only 5 percent were accorded this honor by their patients in 2011.
Dr. Palmieri is of that 5 percent honored, congratulations!
