NP Ranked in Top 5 of "America's Most Loved" Health Care Provider
Posted Feb 11 2011 5:02pm
Congratulations to NP JoAnne Lutz of the Oregon Medical Group for being named in the Top 5 rankings of providers at DrScore.com. According to this press release , DrScore.com is "...an interactive online survey site where patients can rate their physicians, as well as find a physician based on their service level preference."
Steve Feldman, MD, founder of DrScore, states, "This year marks the first time a nurse practitioner has been in the top five runners up,” Dr. Feldman said. “This may reflect an important trend for medical practices as health care continues to evolve —everyone on the frontlines is vitally important in improving patient satisfaction.”
Important trend indeed and some additional proof that NPs are highly regarding by their patients. It's also time to expand these rankings to other providers beyond physicians to include nurse practitioners and physician assistants to name a few.
