As awarded by Patients’ Choice and based on feedback from satisfied clients, Dr. Jeffrey Donaldson recently received the great honor and distinction of being named one of America’s Most Compassionate Doctors. In the field of plastic surgery, this special recognition is a reflection of how patients felt about the quality of their care and the bedside manner with which they were approached. Other factors that are taken into account include follow-up care, appointment availability, courtesy of the office staff, and the amount of patient-doctor face time that is a part of the experience.
While many physicians often receive positive feedback from their patients, Dr. Donaldson, in his practice as a plastic surgeon, is among just 3% of the nearly 870,000 practicing doctors in the nation who have been awarded this special certification. The patients of Dr. Donaldson were very consistent in offering high praise for the personalized care that they received at his facility.
Patients’ Choice is an online resource where individuals can rate and comment on their favorite practitioners. Now, an icon that denotes the “Compassionate Doctor” distinction appears beside Dr. Donaldson’s name and listing as a plastic surgeon on the Patients’ Choice website.
