After tallying hundreds of thousands of patient reviews, Dr. James Goodrich of Bronx, NY has been identified as one of our nation’s Most Compassionate Doctors.
Patients’ Choice has announced that Dr. James Goodrich has been named a Compassionate Doctor honoree for 2011.
In 2011, nearly 100 million patients across the United States used websites including Vitals.com, PatientsChoice.org, and UCompareHealthCare.com to provide feedback about experiences with their physicians, rating them on various aspects of the care they provide.
The Patients’ Choice annual Compassionate Doctor recognition program honors the top 3% of U.S. physicians, including Dr. Goodrich, whose patients have gone out of their way to give them the highest possible ratings in the category of bedside manner, while also ranking them very highly in five other categories.
The basis of this award – a doctor’s bedside manner score – is particularly important, because it conveys the level of comfort a patient feels. Medical research has shown that the more comfortable a patient is with his doctor, the more likely he is to disclose all important health information and follow a prescribed treatment plan, thus leading to a better outcome.
