Last month we learned that 80 of providers at UNC Medical Center had more than 94% of their patients respond “Yes, definitely!” to the question asking whether patients would recommend their provider's office to friends and family, which places them in the top quartile nationally. Many of these physicians were UNC Lineberger members.
The following UNC Lineberger physicians received 100% responses of “Yes definitely:” Drs. John Boggess, Timothy Brotherton, E. Claire Dees, Paola Gehrig, and Raj Pruthi. Other award recipients included Drs. Craig Burkhart, Brad Merritt, David Rubenstein, Nancy Thomas, Mark Weissler, Matt Foster, Hendrik van Deventer and Peter Voorhees.
Many respondents provided comments in their survey “Dr. Brotherton is a class act in every way,” said one patient in response to the survey. “I hope he practices medicine a long time so that I can continue to be his patient.” Of Dr. Dees, one patient wrote “She has guided me skillfully and compassionately through years of being a breast cancer survivor and I am so glad that my surgeon referred me to her when I was seeking an oncologist at the time of my diagnosis.”
