Dr. Alberico Sessa Receives Third Patients' Choice Award

SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2013) - While the world has been busy looking for the ObamaCare girl, she will probably not help us find a good doctor. And now that we know that the smiling brunette is a woman called Adriana from Maryland, our focus is back on a more important question: How can we find a good doctor? And how do we know he or she is really as good as they claim to be? Thanks to our ever-growing networking options on the Internet, there is a plethora of forums and platforms at our disposal where we can find doctors, read reviews from existing patients, and rate them ourselves. One of the most renowned websites for finding qualified and competent physicians is vitals.com. Every year Vitals, the creators of the first consumer marketplace for healthcare information, honors doctors whose aggregate rating is 3.5 stars (out of 4) or above with the Patients' Choice Award.

This year's ceremony also marked the fifth anniversary of the award, an indication of the growing need for online healthcare information websites such as Vitals. "Due to regulatory changes in the coming year, patients will have to be more active in their healthcare decisions than ever before," said Mitch Rothschild, CEO of Vitals. "Vitals.com is proud to offer ratings and data to help consumers navigate this new responsibility confidently. We are even prouder to acknowledge the doctors that make an impact in their community." Review commentary on Vitals.com covers topics like bedside manner, promptness, and even follow-up care for a doctor's practice or hospital. One of this year's proud winners is Dr. Alberico Sessa from Sarasota, Florida who received the Patients' Choice Award the third year in a row.

"These honors are more than trophies to me," remarks Sessa, "They tell me that I'm doing something right. That I continue to exceed my patient's expectations." Apparently his patients appreciate his dedication: On top of winning the Patients' Choice Award in three consecutive years he also received the Compassionate Doctor Recognition Award twice, a clear recognition by his patients for his outstanding service. "This means everything to me," commented Dr. Alberico Sessa. "To be recognized by my patients and noticed for my compassion is an enormous compliment."
