|Dear Dr. Petre:
Congratulations! You are being honored with a Vitals Compassionate Doctor Award.
Treating patients – not just the disease – is what you excel at, and your patients appreciate the kindness you have dispensed along with your medical care.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of patients provide feedback about their doctor online. Patients write about their experience and rate their doctor on several components of care, including bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, and degree of follow-up. Patients also provide an overall rating.
While physicians generally receive positive feedback from their patients, only a select few receive praise about the compassion that accompanied their care.
In fact, of the nation’s 870,000 active doctors, only 3 percent will be accorded this honor by their patients in 2013.
Vitals Compassionate Doctor Award is part of the Vitals Awards & Recognition Program, where patients rate and review their doctors. You are now among those physicians so highly regarded that your patients feel the need share their positive experience with others.
An icon denoting your distinction as a 2013 Vitals Compassionate Doctor Award will be prominently displayed in your profile on Vitals, managed care sites, and on top health insurance sites. More than 12,000,000 people visit Vitals network of sites each month.
Congratulations on this outstanding distinction.
