KOKOMO, Ind., May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Patients' Choice has announced that Dr. Praveen Perni 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.
