Every month more than 200,000 patients provide online feedback about their physician experiences, rating physicians for the quality of their bedside manner, the amount of doctor-patient face time received, the degree of follow-up, and the courtesy of the office staff. Physicians who continually receive high praise and rave reviews from their patients are nominated to receive the Patients’ Choice designation. Dr. Shiffman’s near perfect scores from his patients earned him high honors in this year’s rankings.
A variety of internet databases such as Vitals.com and Health.com, encourage patients to leave feedback about their physicians, which is then tabulated by MDx Medical Inc. These reviews are unsolicited and reflect the patients’ personal experience with a physician and their overall opinion of the care they received.
