- Jun. 11, 2012 - HICKORY, N.C. --
Gregory Swank, M.D., a board certified plastic surgeon with Piedmont Plastic Surgery and Dermatology in Hickory, NC was honored with the prestigious 2011 Patients' Choice Award. Only doctors who have received top scores by their patients and pass other quality measures are awarded the Patients' Choice Award. In fact, of the nation's 720,000 active physicians, just 5 percent were accorded this honor recently from feedback received in 2011.
Every month, millions of patients across the U.S. access websites like Vitals (http://www.vitals.com)
to share feedback about their experiences with their doctors. Patients rate various components of the care they receive, such as the accuracy of their diagnosis, the amount of time they spent with the doctor, and the doctor's bedside manner and follow-up care. Patient's Choice ranks the top reviewed physicians and looks at other quality measures to compile its yearly list.
"This is quite an honor for me,” said Dr. Swank. “I am very pleased to have been selected and grateful to my patients who went out of their way to rate me and give me positive reviews."
