What is the Patients’ Choice Award?

Patients’ Choice recognition reflects the difference doctors make in the lives of their patients. The honor is bestowed on physicians and dentists who have received near perfect scores, as voted by their patients.

Every month, more than 200,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their experiences with their physicians and dentists. They provide overall opinions and rate various components of care, such as bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, and courtesy of office staff.

While doctors generally receive positive reviews from their patients, only a select few receive uniformly rave reviews worthy of a Patients’ Choice acknowledgement. In fact, of the nation’s 830,000 active doctors, only 5% were accorded this honor by their patients in 2012.

PatientsChoice.org is a resource for patients looking for quality care. Updated annually, the site only features physicians and dentists who’ve been named Patients’ Choice winners.To qualify as a Patients’ Choice recipient, a physician or dentist must have:

  • An active medical or dental license
  • Consistently high patient ratings provided during the year of the award
  • No sanctions
