For the second year in a row, Dr. Donaldson has received the coveted Patients’ Choice Award. He has been further recognized within the sub-categories of Most Compassionate Doctor and On-Time Physician.
Every month, more than 40,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their experiences with their doctors. They rate various components such as bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, courtesy of office staff, and overall opinions. Over the course of 2009 and 2010, these reviews have totaled hundreds of thousands of patient opinions. While physicians generally receive positive reviews from their patients, only a select few receive uniformly rave reviews across the board. Of those that receive rave reviews, only physicians with near perfect scores have been voted by their patients for this honor. In fact, of the nation’s 720,000 active physicians, less than 6% were accorded this honor by their patients in 2009 and 2010. The “Patients’ Choice” award is tabulated by MDx Medical, Inc.
