Unity’s OB/GYN Chair Recipient of 2012 Patients’ Choice Award

Unity Health System’s Albert Jones, M.D., chair of the OB/GYN department, is the recipient of the 2012 Patients' Choice award.

The Patients' Choice honor is given as a reflection of patients' continued appreciation and praise for the quality of care and service from their provider.

Every month, more than 200,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their doctor experiences. They rate various components of the care they receive, such as bedside manner, doctor-patient time, follow-up care, ease of appointment setting and courtesy of office staff. They also share their overall opinions.

Over the course of 2012, hundreds of thousands of patient reviews were written and shared. While physicians generally receive positive feedback from their patients, only a select few consistently receive rave reviews.

Of those with high praise, only physicians like Dr. Jones- with near perfect scores- are voted by their patients for this honor. Of the nation's 870,000 active physicians, only five percent were accorded this honor by their patients in 2012.

Dr. Jones’ distinction will be prominently displayed on a broad collection of websites, including Patients' Choice, Vitals, Google, a variety of managed care sites and top health insurance sites.
