HARTSDALE, N.Y., Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Among the select few physicians honored with the prestigious Patients' Choice Award this year is Dr. Marlene Galizi MD.
In fact, of the nation's 870,000 active physicians and dentists, just five percent consistently received top scores from their patients on sites like Vitals (http://www.vitals.com), qualifying them for this honor in 2012.
Millions of patients go online each year to rate their doctors on various components of care, including accuracy of their diagnosis, the amount of time they spent with the doctor, and the doctor's bedside manner and follow-up care. Patients' Choice reviews these rankings and other quality measures to compile its yearly list of award winners.
Dr. Marlene Galizi MD commented on the recognition: "I'm so honored to receive an award that's based on how my patients view the quality of care I provide. I strive each day to exceed my patients' expectations, and I'm grateful that they've recognized my efforts."
About Marlene Galizi MD: a short profile by and about the honoree:
I have been a board certified Gastroenterologist and liver disease specialist for over 15 years. From the beginning I have learned that it is not only important to be a specialist in my field but, to also place value on the patient-physician relationship. Having the advantage of remaining in solo practice, I can maintain a high level of quality and individualization. My patients and I can still maintain a relationship without the eroding effects of the ongoing institutionalization of healthcare.
