Diamond Doc Award recognizes physicians for exceptional patient care

(SACRAMENTO)

On March 22, chief administrator Brad Simmons and chief medical officer Doug Kirk presented 76 UC Davis Health physicians with the Diamond Doc Award.

The award celebrates physicians who demonstrated careful listening, clear explanations, and respectful partnerships, while receiving 90th percentile or higher scores on patient surveys for the first quarter of 2022.

Kirk said, “I am proud to share this is the highest number of doctors receiving this honor since the Patient Experience Team launched the award. And, many of our honorees have achieved this award multiple times. This award reflects the extraordinary care you provide to our patients. Your care is one of the many reasons the medical center has been named Sacramento’s No. 1 hospital for the last decade.”
