Dr. Michael Greller has been awarded the prestigious 2013 Patients’ Choice Award. Patients rate their doctors, and after receiving high scores, Dr. Greller has been singled out as one of the top orthopedic surgeons for patient care and expertise in the nation.
Millions of patients go online each year to rate their doctors on various components of care, including accuracy of their diagnosis, the amount of time they spent with the doctor, the doctor's bedside manner and follow-up care. Patients' Choice reviews these rankings and other quality measures to compile its yearly list of award winners.
Only the top 5% of the nation’s 870,000 active physicians received this honorable award in 2013. Dr. Greller’s heartfelt reaction was captured when he commented, "I’m honored to receive an award that is based on the ratings from my patients. With experience, we have learned to do the little things right. We have learned that helping patients achieve their goals makes all the difference. When patients recognize you it means so much and for me it means that our entire practice shares in this award. Medical assistants, physician assistants, staff and the other talented surgeons of AOSMI all help shape the care and expertise that I bring to my patients.”
Jon Mackler, AOSMI's Chief Operating Officer stated “Dr. Greller is always working to make patient care and quality the top priority in our practice. His leadership and expertise shape the care we provide everyday and to be recognized by his own patients underscores his commitment, not only to AOSMI, but to each and every one of his patients.”
