Dr. Zehr wins trio of awards

NAPLES, Fla. (March 19, 2018) – Naples orthopaedic surgeon Robert J. Zehr, M.D., of The Zehr Center for Orthopaedics, has once again been chosen to receive the Vitals Patients’ Choice Award, an honor bestowed on a select few physicians nationwide. Every month patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their doctor experiences. They rate the various components of the care they receive, such as bedside manner, doctor-patient time, follow-up care, ease of appointment setting, courtesy of office staff, and they also share their overall opinions. Dr. Zehr has won this award every year since 2009.

Vitals’ Compassionate Doctor certification is granted to physicians who treat their patients with the utmost kindness. The honor is granted based on a physician’s overall and bedside manner scores. Dr. Zehr has been honored with this award consistently since 2010.

Dr. Zehr also received the Vitals On-Time + Promptness Award which recognizes doctors with consistent high ratings for timeliness of appointments. The honor is granted based on a physician’s overall and promptness scores.

Hundreds of thousands of patients wrote and shared reviews over the course of 2018. While physicians generally receive positive feedback from their patients, only a select few consistently receive rave reviews. Of those with high praise, only physicians with near-perfect scores receive this honor. The Vitals collection of doctor ratings and reviews is now the largest available on the web, aggregating over 5 million physician ratings from patients sharing their experience with other patients.
