Vitals Awards & Recognition Program

Each year, hundreds of thousands of new doctor reviews and ratings are featured on  Patients write about their experience and rate their doctor on several components of care, including bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, and degree of follow-up.  Patients also provide their doctor with an overall rating.  Vitals analyzes these ratings annually, along with other quality measures, to identify yearly winners of doctor awards.

While most doctors receive positive feedback from their patients, only a few meet the criteria for a Vitals Award or Recognition.*
