Comments Off on 2011 Most Compassionate Doctor Award

The 2011 patient reviews have been totaled, and you were selected by your patients for the Compassionate Doctor Recognition!

Congratulations Dr. Iddings,

Treating patients, not just the disease, is what you excel at, and your patients appreciate the kindness you have dispensed along with your medical care.

This award is based on reviews written by hundreds of thousands of patients. While physicians generally receive positive feedback from their patients, only a select few receive praise about the compassion that accompanied their care. In fact, of the nation’s 720,000 active physicians, less than 3% were accorded this honor by their patients in 2011.

Congratulations on perhaps the most important recognition a doctor can receive, the recognition of their patients.

Patient’s Choice Award

Nov 1, 2011

Douglas M Iddings, DO
8384 Holly Rd
Grand Blanc, MI, 48439-1974

Dear Dr. Iddings:

Congratulations! You have once again been recognized as a Patients’ Choice physician.

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 face time, follow-up care, ease of appointment setting, courtesy of office staff, and they also share their overall opinions.

Over the course of 2011, 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 yourself – with near perfect scores – have been voted by their patients for this honor.

In fact, of the nation’s 720,000 active physicians, less than 6 percent were accorded this honor by their patients in 2010.

You are, indeed, the Patients’ Choice; a physician so highly regarded by their patients that they feel the need to talk to others about the positive influence of your work.

This notation of your distinction as a 2011 Patients’ Choice physician will be prominently displayed in your Profile on a broad collection of web sites, including PatientsChoice, Vitals, Google, and a variety of Managed Care sites. More than 500,000 people view these websites on a daily basis.

To ensure all aspects of your profile are correct, please go to www.vitals.com and click “login: physician” in the upper right hand corner of the site; there you will be able to log in using your previously registered email and password, or if you have not previously registered you will be able to do so by clicking “get started.”

Congratulations once again on this outstanding distinction.

Sincerely,

Erika Boyer
Vice President, Consumer Research

    1. A high-fiber diet may improve the response of melanoma patients to immunotherapy - NCI researchers have found that a diet rich in fiber may help some people being treated for melanoma respond to immunotherapy treatment by influencing the gut microbiome. The new findings come from an analysis of people with melanoma and mouse models of the disease.
    2. Drug combination helps children with acute promyelocytic leukemia avoid conventional chemotherapy - A Children’s Oncology Group trial shows that the combination of all-trans retinoic acid and arsenic trioxide is highly effective in children with acute promyelocytic leukemia. The therapy avoids or minimizes the use of conventional chemotherapy.
    3. Ibrutinib improves survival for younger people with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma - NCI researchers have found that adding the targeted therapy ibrutinib (Imbruvica) to standard chemotherapy can improve how long some younger people with a specific form of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma live. The new findings come from a new analysis of a previously conducted phase 3 clinical trial called Phoenix.
    4. Annual Report to the Nation Part 2: Patient economic burden of cancer care more than $21 billion in the United States in 2019 - Part 2 of the 2021 Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer, finds that the patient economic burden associated with cancer care in the United States in 2019 was $21.09 billion. This includes patient out-of-pocket costs of $16.22 billion and patient time costs of $4.87 billion.
    5. NCI study highlights pandemic’s disproportionate impact on Black, American Indian/Alaska Native, and Latino adults - A large surveillance study led by NCI researchers suggests that the global COVID-19 pandemic has caused more deaths in the United States among Black, American Indian/Alaska Native, and Latino individuals than among white or Asian individuals.
    6. NIH study illuminates origins of lung cancer in never smokers - NCI scientists and their international collaborators have found that the majority of lung cancers in never smokers arise when mutations caused by natural processes in the body accumulate. They also identified three subtypes of lung cancer these individuals.
    7. In a common genetic disorder, blood test reveals when benign tumors turn cancerous - NCI scientists have developed a blood test that could one day offer a highly sensitive and inexpensive approach to detect cancer early in people with NF1. The blood test could also help doctors monitor how well patients are responding to treatment for their cancer.
    8. Annual Report to the Nation: Rapid decrease in lung cancer and melanoma deaths lead overall continued decline in cancer death rate - The 2021 Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer finds overall cancer death rates continue to decline in the United States for all cancer sites combined. The rapid drop in lung cancer and melanoma deaths led to the overall decline.
    9. International study of rare childhood cancer finds genetic clues, potential for tailored therapy - A team of international researchers has identified mutations in several genes, including TP53, MYOD1, and CDKN2A, that appear to be associated with an aggressive form of rhabdomyosarcoma in children. The findings could lead to more targeted treatments for the disease.
    10. International research teams explore genetic effects of Chernobyl radiation - One study examined whether genetic changes associated with exposure to radiation from the 1986 accident were passed from parent to child. A second study documented the genetic changes in thyroid tumors from people exposed as children or fetuses to radiation from the accident.
