Dr. Thomas Wright of the Laser Lipo and Vein Center in St Louis, Missouri, has been chosen as one of the nation’s top physicians honored by the 2011 Patients’ Choice Award.
Dr. Wright received near perfect scores from his patients rating such areas as follow-up care, accuracy of diagnosis, the doctor’s bedside manner, the amount of time patients spend with the doctor and overall opinion. Dr. Wright was a Patients’ Choice honoree in 2010 as well.
“Patient experience is our highest priority,” stated Dr. Wright. “To earn the trust and approval of our patients and to assist in their health care is an honor for me.”
In addition to the Patients’ Choice Awards, Dr. Wright has been accorded many other honors during his medical career. Some of these awards include election to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society, the American Medical Association Physician Recognition Award, and appointment as a Howard Hughes Research Fellow. In 2009, Dr. Wright was selected as one of St Louis Magazine’s TOP DOCS. TOP DOCS are chosen by physicians that have been previously honored. The selection represents the endorsement of the St. Louis medical community.
Of over 700,000 active physicians in the United States, only 5 percent received the prestigious Patients’ Choice Award in 2011. The voting takes place exclusively among patients, who go out of their way to provide reflections on their experiences with their physicians.
