NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Only a small percentage of the nation's physicians are ever honored with a Patients' Choice Award. But Newport Beach Internal Medicine Dr. Dennis Jordanides 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. Dennis Jordanides' 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. Dennis Jordanides 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."
Dr. Jordanides is the Chief of Clinical Practice Development at Hoag Medical Group. Over his 13 years of clinical practice, Dr. Jordanides has served as Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of California, started an inpatient medicine program at Eisenhower Medical Center, and has participated in a number of physician leadership roles. He has been in practice in Newport Beach since 2007, and has developed a unique style of practice which centers around delivering personalized, compassionate, coordinated, and thoughtful patient care.
