The Importance of Peer Recognition
A medical practitioner must complete at least 11 years of academia to become licensed. Those are not eight-hour days. They put in long days and nights of undergraduate education, medical school, residency, and specialization. Many doctors take on the additional rigors of Board-certification. That is a tremendous commitment, in the interest of serving others . . . and they do it voluntarily. Doesn’t that dedication alone, without even considering the daily demands of practice, warrant a bit of special recognition? The founders of Doctors’ Choice Awards believe so.
The Doctors’ Choice Awards platform was designed to distinguish medical professionals esteemed for upholding the highest standards of patient care, technical knowledge, and commitment to advancing their field of practice. Doctors’ Choice Awards gathers verified reviews and ratings from doctors about doctors. We use a statistically-valid process to determine those who rise above.

Value of a doctor’s opinion
If your luxury automobile stopped running, who would you most trust for guidance on the right repair garage to choose? Probably, an experienced automobile mechanic. He’d likely have much clearer perspective on who is qualified to handle the job correctly than perhaps a hair stylist, banker, or building contractor.
The same concept applies when consumers are choosing healthcare providers. Except, they often don’t move in the same social circles as doctors, to get that advice. That’s where Doctors’ Choice Awards accolades are invaluable.
Potential patients rightfully trust the opinions of other doctors. Doctors’ Choice Awards clearly illustrates the support of peers, adding to consumer confidence. Though reviews and testimonials from patients are important, this level of credibility carries even more weight.
Medical professionals respect this recognition and consumers trust it, for good reason – Doctors’ Choice Awards are not for sale; they must be earned.
