Beverly Hills, CA — Dr. Jay Orringer, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, has recently been selected as a 2012 Patients’ Choice Award recipient for his commitment to patient care in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. The recognition is bestowed as a reflection of each doctor’s dedication to providing their patients with quality service, and is measured based on various components of the patient’s experience including bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, follow-up care, ease of appointment setting, and courtesy of office staff. Dr. Orringer says he is honored to receive the Patients’ Choice Award and grateful for the opportunity to continue serving his community with their aesthetic surgical needs.
According to the Patients’ Choice organization, more than 200,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their doctor experiences each month. Of the nation’s 870,000 active physicians, less than five percent received this recognition from their patients in 2012. Dr. Orringer says being included among such a distinguished group of surgeons and medical professionals is an honor, as the ultimate measure of success is patient satisfaction. However, he says that receiving this award was not merely the product of hard work, but also the result of an enthusiasm and passion for helping his Beverly Hills plastic surgery patients, as well as patients from other states and countries, achieve their aesthetic goals:
“Every patient has a unique goal and an individualized solution is very important for a successful outcome. Taking the time to listen to the patient and develop a plan for that unique individual is an important aspect of our success.”
Focusing on a wide variety of procedures ranging from breast augmentation to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dr. Orringer says one of the cornerstones of his practice has been a commitment to continued education. He says critically evaluating the latest techniques and implementing them when appropriate allows him to work toward more natural and aesthetic results. As the field of cosmetic surgery progresses and evolves, Dr. Orringer says that incorporating new emerging techniques may provide patients with improved outcomes. However, he cautions that “newer” is not always better and that innovative technologies should always be evaluated before being implemented: “The best plastic surgery practices today seem to be open to innovation, while having a person answer the phone and the doctor return calls.”
As he looks ahead, Dr. Orringer says that receiving the Patients’ Choice Award is an honor that only increases his enthusiasm for what he does. He says that whether he is performing a facelift or a tummy tuck, emphasizing individuality, patient involvement, comfort and satisfaction tend to make for a positive and caring experience.
