Craig G. Morton, MD, FAAPMR, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Specialist with Center for Orthopaedics, was among a select group of physicians honored with the prestigious "Patients' Choice Award” from Vitals.com for 2015.
Of the nation's 120 million active physicians and dentists, just five percent received top scores from their patients, qualifying them for this honor. 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.
