After tallying hundreds of thousands of patient reviews, Dr. Saurabh
Khakharia of ,Georgia has been identified as one of our
nation's Most Compassionate Doctors.
Georgia (PR Newswire) July 1,2012 - Patients' Choice has
announced that Dr. Saurabh Khakhariahas been named a
Compassionate Doctor honoree for 2011.
In 2011, nearly 100 million patients across the United States used
UCompareHealthCare.com to provide feedback about experiences
with their physicians, rating them on various aspects of the care
The Patients' Choice annual Compassionate Doctor recognition program
honors the top 3% of U.S. physicians, including Dr. Khakharia, whose
patients have gone out of their way to give them the highest
possible ratings in the category of bedside manner, while also
ranking them very highly in five other categories.
The basis of this award – a doctor's bedside manner score – is
particularly important, because it conveys the level of comfort a
patient feels. Medical research has shown that the more comfortable
a patient is with his doctor, the more likely he is to disclose all
important health information and follow a prescribed treatment plan,
thus leading to a better outcome.
"While many physicians receive positive feedback from patients,
relatively few receive such high praise about the compassion that
accompanies their care," said Erika Boyer, Vice President of
Consumer Research at Patients' Choice. "We congratulate Dr.
Khakharia on this achievement.".
