Diamond Doc Award recognizes physicians for exceptional patient care

Diamond Doc Award recognizes physicians for exceptional patient care

(SACRAMENTO)

On Nov. 30, UC Davis Health CEO David Lubarsky, Chief Administrator Brad Simmons and Chief Medical Officer Doug Kirk presented 52 UC Davis Health physicians with Diamond Doc Awards.

The award celebrates physicians who demonstrated careful listening, clear explanations, and respectful partnerships. They all scored in the 90th percentile or above in one of two recent surveys: the hospital consumer assessment of health care providers and the children’s hospital consumer assessment of health care providers.

“The data for this award comes from our patients and it reflects their voice and experience,” said Kirk. “The exemplary care you give is what makes the difference to our patients and I thank you for that.”
