Seventh Annual Vitals Patients’ Choice Award Recognizes Dr. Alexa S. Lessow for Outstanding Care Based on Patient Feedback
New York, NY — September 22, 2015 — Vitals, a leader in providing online transparency tools and data that help consumers find top doctors and make informed decisions about their medical care, is pleased to announce that Dr. Alexa S. Lessow has been honored with the prestigious 2014 Vitals Patients’ Choice Award. The Award, now in its seventh year, is a widely recognized distinction bestowed on doctors by the people they care for — their patients.
Each year, Vitals receives millions of patient-reported ratings on various components of their doctor’s 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.
Vitals Patients’ Choice Award winners must receive an overall rating of at least 3.5 or higher (out of 4.0). Winning doctors must also have a medical license in good standing with no sanctions. Of the nation’s 1 million active physicians and dentists, just 5 percent qualified for this honor in 2014.
Dr. Alexa S. Lessow commented on the recognition:
