Recognition places Dr. Janicek among the top 1% of Gynecologic Oncologists in the U.S.

PHOENIX (July 21, 2014)—Dr. Mike Janicek, gynecologic oncologist with Arizona Oncology, a practice in The US Oncology Network, was recently named a recipient of the 2014 Vitals Top 10 Doctor Award. This honor recognizes physicians, by specialty, with the highest patient ratings in their communities.

“Vitals established the Top 10 Doctor Award to help patients easily identify the highest-rated doctors in their communities, as well as to honor local specialists who've received the highest praise from their patients online,” said Mitch Rothschild, CEO of Vitals.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of patients provide online feedback about their doctor experiences. Patients provide an overall rating, then write about their experience and rate their doctor on several components of care, including bedside manner, doctor-patient face time and degree of follow-up.

Vitals analyzes these patient-provided ratings to identify physicians within a certain specialty and location who are rated the highest by their patients and stand out for their extraordinary care. The winners represent 39 specialties in more than 2,500 neighborhoods across the U.S.
