The Patients' Choice Award is based on patient-provided online ratings.

DAYTON, Ohio, August 1, 2013 /PR Newswire-USNewswire/ -- Only a small percentage of the nation's physicians are ever honored with a Patients' Choice Award. But Dayton Medical Oncology and Hematology Dr. Alejandro Calvo belongs to an even more selective group of doctors who are being honored this year as five-time Patients' Choice honorees, marking the award's fifth anniversary.

Of the nearly 900,000 active doctors and dentists in the U.S., just five percent earned the consistently high patient ratings on Vitals, UCompareHealthCare, and other sites in 2012 needed to qualify for the Patients' Choice Award. Even fewer U.S. doctors - only one percent - earned Dr. Alejandro Calvo's achievement: award-worthy patient praise for five consecutive years (2008 through 2012).

Each year, millions of patients rate their doctors on various critical aspects of their care, including: diagnosis accuracy, time spent with the doctor, bedside manner, and follow-up. Vitals analyzes these ratings annually, along with other quality measures, to identify Patients Choice Award winners.

Dr. Alejandro Calvo commented on the recognition: "I'm grateful that so many patients have gone out of their way throughout the past five years to rate my care - and rate it so highly! It's wonderful to be recognized in this particular way. Thank you."
