Dr. Giya Harry, a pediatrician at Northern Hospital and Northern Pediatrics, was recently bestowed with the Vitals Patients’ Choice Award.
“Vitals is a leader in providing online transparency tools and data that help consumers find top doctors and make informed decisions about their medical care,” according to information released by the pediatrics groups. “To be chosen as a top performing doctor you must have an average rating of 3.5 or higher out of a 4-star rating, have at least four reviews in the calendar year, and have a medical license in good standing with no sanctions.”
The group said that doctors are scored by patients in seven categories: ease of appointment, promptness, courtesy of staff, bedside manner, accurate diagnosis, amount of time spent listening and follow up care. More than one‐third of this year’s winners received perfect scores of 4.0 by their patients. The average overall rating for a Vitals’ Patients Choice recipient was 3.78 out of 4.
“I am both honored and humbled to be a recipient of this award; to be recognized by parents for the care you provide their children is truly validating,” Dr. harry said. “From the front staff to the nurses and physicians, we at Northern Pediatrics take the care of our patients very seriously and strive to improve our provision of medical care and the patient/family experience/
“Ultimately, to receive care for your children at Northern Pediatrics is to have board certified, compassionate and dedicated pediatricians at your disposable,” she said.
