As stated on the Patient's Choice website, the "Patients' Choice recognition reflects the difference a particular physician has made in the lives of their patients. The honor is bestowed to physicians who have received near perfect scores as voted by patients. Every month, more than 100,000 patients across the U.S. provide online feedback about their experiences with their doctors. They rate various components such as bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, courtesy of office staff, and overall opinions. Over the course of 2010, these reviews have totaled hundreds of thousands patient opinions. While physicians generally receive positive reviews from their patients, only a select few receive uniformly rave reviews across the board. Of those who have received rave reviews with near perfect scores by their patients are awarded this honor."
"Although I have been fortunate," stated Dr. Glassman,"to receive several Top Doctors awards as voted regionally and nationally by my peers, the Patients Choice Award represents something very special. This award represents how patients evaluate me as their doctor. For me, being a physician is so much more than simply how efficiently I can manage my patient load or how quickly I can reach into my pocket to write a prescription. Rather, my approach of listening, guiding, and coaching is what I feel is my role. By winning this award, it affirms that my approach resonates with the needs of my patients and I am truly grateful."
Dr. Glassman takes an all encompassing, holistic view of healthcare. Known as 'Coach MD', his role is to serve as a personal guide to total wellness. He effectively guides his clients through the maze of medical choices available today. He believes that total wellness is so much more than taking pills to mask symptoms. Mind, body and spirit must work as one unit. There must be balance. Beyond diagnosis and medical treatment, total wellness also encompasses emotional factors, spirituality, meditation, diet, alternative therapies, relaxation techniques, positive thinking - the list goes on and on. He is also giving away his new ebook,'Destiny Diet', that offers the first step on the path to that state of total wellness.
