DAKOTA DUNES, S.D., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Patients' Choice has announced that Dr. Brian Johnson was one of a select few physicians honored with the prestigious 2012 Compassionate Doctor Certification.


Each year, nearly 100 million patients across the U.S. access websites like Vitals, UCompareHealthCare, and Patients' Choice to provide feedback about experiences with their physicians. 

Only those physicians with near perfect overall and bedside manner scores, as voted by their patients, are selected for the Compassionate Doctor recognition. Of the nation's 870,000 active physicians, only 3% were accorded this honor in 2012.

The Compassionate Doctor certification is part of the Patients' Choice recognition program, where patients rate and vote for their favorite doctors.
