Every month, more than 40,000 patients across the US provide online feedback about their experiences with their doctors. They rate various components such as bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, courtesy of office staff, and overall opinions.

Over the course of the year, these reviews have totaled hundreds of thousands of patient opinions. 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 Drs. Stephen M. Desio – with near perfect scores, has been voted by his patients for this honor. In fact, of the nation’s 720,000 active physicians, less than 5% were awarded this honor by their patients in 2010.
