As a radiologist, I enjoy helping people improve their lives. Radiology is a constantly evolving field and I am excited by the new technologies being developed in diagnostic radiology as well as in procedure-driven interventional radiology.
I specifically was drawn to pediatric radiology after my own daughter was diagnosed with cancer (neuroblastoma) at the age of one. As the father of a pediatric patient, I had a front-row seat to observe how vital the radiologist was to my daughter’s diagnosis and treatment.
Many believe that radiologists spend all their time in a dark room and have very little patient contact. Actually, a radiologist’s day is filled with patient contact and communication is key. Whether discussing imaging results with a patient or discussing the available image-guided treatment options, clear communication ensures knowledge and trust, and allows the patient a key role in managing their own care alongside the provider.
A provider's patient satisfaction rating is determined by patient responses to questions from the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey, administered by NRC Health.
Patients today have more choices than ever, including where, how and from whom they get care. That's why Revere Health believes it's important to provide access to transparent information, empowering our patients to make knowledgable decisions about their healthcare.
CAHPS surveys are funded and overseen by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) within the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Patients receive the nine-question survey via email or phone call, and we publish provider ratings on Revere Health's website once he or she has at least 30 completed surveys.
