Podiatrists are #3 Ranked Specialists by Patients
While every other industry has embraced the creed, “The customer is always right,” healthcare has approached treating the patient as a consumer with skepticism. When it came to the highest-rated doctors, surprisingly, not one primary care specialist cracked the top five. Instead, specialists and surgeons represented the top of the list. Vitals found that patient feedback was second in importance to a doctor’s treatment philosophy when choosing a doctor.
Highest Ranked Specialists
#1 Neuromusculoskeletal Specialists
#2 Thoracic Surgeons
#4 Plastic Surgeons
#5 Colon & Rectal Surgeons
On the bottom of the list, were psychiatrists, often vilified for their cool, disconnected demeanor, along with specialists that people see on their worse days, like emergency doctors and pain management specialists.
