Medical patients across the country were surveyed regarding their experience and rated their doctors on criteria such as bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, and courtesy of office staff. Those with the highest scores were awarded the designation of “Patients’ Choice” physicians.

Of these that receive rave reviews, only physicians with near perfect scores have been voted by their patients for this honor.
Of the nation’s 720,000 active physicians, less than 5% were awarded this honor in 2008 and less than 6% in 2009.
