Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) April 12, 2013
Board-certified orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine expert Eric Millstein, MD, recently received a Patients Choice Award recognizing his unique approach to patient care.
While its great to receive recognition from my peers, theres something extra special about being acknowledged by my patients, said Dr. Millstein. Im incredibly honored to be a recipient of the Patients Choice Award.
Granted to a select few physicians who are specialists in their fields, the Patients Choice Award honors doctors who are known for providing exceptional patient care. Based on patient feedback and reviews, the award recognizes those doctors who offer not only exemplary medical treatments but also great compassion. Of the 830,000 doctors currently practicing in the US, just 5 percent received the Patients Choice Award in 2012.
Seeking medical treatment for a condition or injury is often frightening, said Dr. Millstein, who specializes in sports medicine treatments. My goal is not just to provide exceptional medical care but also comfort and peace of mind during a difficult time in patients lives.
Patients seeking quality care can search patientschoice.org for doctors who have been honored with this distinction in the past. In order to qualify for this award, doctors and dentists must have uniformly high patient reviews and ratings and no sanctions on record.
In addition to receiving the Patients Choice Award in 2011 and 2012, Dr. Millstein is proud to be a recipient of awards given by Castle Connolly, US News and World Report and Super Doctors. The Super Doctors directory lists only the top 5 percent of doctors in each state.
One of the best parts of my job is getting happy feedback from my patients, said Dr. Millstein. Its truly an honor to know that I was able to help people at a difficult time.
