    Patients' Voice Echoes Patients’ Choice

    Ever gotten a survey in the mail asking you to rate your recent experience at your doctor’s office? If you have—and if you took a few minutes to complete it—you helped us understand what you thought about your overall care experience.

    Feedback from patients like you contributes to calculating patient satisfaction scores. Our network of nearly 5,000 physicians, the Sutter Medical Network, looks at this data to recognize physicians who are true role models in service. Doctors who treat people—rather than symptoms. Physicians who create personal connections with their patients.

    How it works
    The 2015 SMN Patients’ Choice Award recognizes the top three primary care and top three specialty care physicians with the highest overall mean score compared to all other eligible physicians in his or her Operating Unit on all Press Ganey Medical Practice Survey Standard questions in the “Care Provider” section, using November 2014 YTD results.
