Dr. Michael Kettel of SDFC Awarded Patients' Choice Recognition
San Diego, CA, December 15, 2009 -- San Diego Fertility Center, one of the most respected and successful infertility clinics in the United States and a leading fertility center in Southern California, is proud to announce that Dr. Michael Kettel, MD has been honored by his patients with a Patients' Choice recognition.
"This award sets a standard of excellence for San Diego Fertility Center and reflects our commitment to our patients and dedication to their needs," says Dr. Kettel. "The entire staff works together to ensure a satisfying patient experience."
Every month, more than 40,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their experiences with their doctors on websites like Vitals.com, RightHealth.com, Google.com, and a variety of Managed Care sites, many of which are viewed by more than 150,000 people on a daily basis.
Over the course of 2008, these reviews have totaled hundreds of thousands of patient opinions about qualities like bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, and courtesy of office staff. Of the nation's 720,000 active physicians, less than 5% were accorded this honor by their patients in 2008.
While physicians generally receive positive reviews from their patients, only a select few receive uniformly rave reviews across the board. Of those that receive rave reviews, only physicians like San Diego Fertility Center's Dr. Kettel - with near perfect scores - have been voted for this honor, which reflects the difference he has made in the lives of patients.
On behalf of all the staff at San Diego Fertility Center, we congratulate Dr. Kettel on his honor and wish him continued success in the future.
