NEW YORK, November 5, 2014 Vitals is pleased to announce that Dr. Garrett Bennett has been honored with the prestigious 2014 Compassionate Doctor Award.

The accolade, which recognizes physician excellence, is given only to doctors who receive outstanding patient reviews throughout the calendar year. Of the nation’s 870,000 active physicians, only 3 percent were accorded the Vitals Compassionate Doctor Award in 2014.

Each year, nearly 150 million patients across the U.S. access Vitals and UCompareHealthCare to provide feedback about their experiences with their physicians. The Vitals Compassionate Doctor Award is bestowed on doctors who have an average rating of at least a 3.5 out of 4.0 in the category of bedside manner. All winning doctors must also have a medical license in good standing with no sanctions.

Patients’ Choice recognition reflects the difference a particular physician has made in the lives of his/her patients. The honor is bestowed to physicians who have received near perfect scores, as voted by patients.

Dr. Garrett Bennett commented on the recognition: “It is an honor to be given this award for 5 years running. My staff and I pride ourselves in treating patients how we would like to be cared for. I am extremely grateful and want to thank all the patients who went out of their way to share the positive experience they had with us.”
