Vail, Colorado spine surgeon, Dr. Donald Corenman, has been selected for the Compassionate Doctor certification for 2012. The Compassionate Doctor certification is part of the Patients’ Choice recognition program. This is a program where patients rate and vote for their favorite doctors. Active physicians are considered for this award based on their overall reviews and scores that patients submit on sites such as Vitals, UCompareHealthCare, and Patients’ Choice.
Each year, more than 100 million patients access these site, and similar medical review sites to provide critical feedback about the performance, bedside manners, and medical skill of doctors. Of more than 870,000 active physicians in the U.S., only 3% are given this honor.
Dr. Corenman is an orthopedic specialist and spine surgeon at The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado. Back pain affects millions of Americans each day. Finding answers can be a challenging and overwhelming black hole for back pain sufferers. Dr. Corenman is passionate about providing patients with the knowledge they need regarding their back pain so that informative decisions can be made regarding treatment. He views each patient relationship as a journey towards eliminating their back pain. He has also written a book on the subject of why lower back pain exists and ways to treat it.
According to Dr. Corenman, “This is quite an honor for me. I am very pleased to have been selected and grateful to my patients who went out of their way to rate me and give me positive reviews.”
