NAPLES, Fla. (April 1, 2013)– Naples orthopaedic surgeon Robert J. Zehr, M.D., of The Zehr Center for Orthopaedics, has once again been named one of America’s Most Compassionate Doctors by PatientsChoice.org. Of the nation’s 870,000 active physicians, only 3% were accorded this honor by their patients in 2012. The award recognizes “faithful service to patients” as determined by online patient ratings. Dr. Zehr has received at least 33% more patient evaluations upon which to base this award than any other orthopaedic surgeon in the Southwest Florida area.
Every month, more than 200,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their doctor experiences. They rate the various components of the care they receive, such as bedside manner, doctor-patient time, follow-up care, ease of appointment setting, and courtesy of office staff. Many also share their overall opinions by submitting comments as well, such as this one from orthopaedic nurse Lorraine El-Deiry: “When severe pain began interfering with my golf and my nursing career, I chose Dr. Zehr as my surgeon for both of my hip replacements. Dr. Zehr always performs the latest techniques, is meticulous and educates his patients to know what to expect. I am often asked by my colleagues to recommend the best surgeon for their family or friend and Dr. Zehr is my #1 choice!”
