Dallas Weight Loss Surgeon at Kim Bariatric Institute Honored with 2014 Vitals On-Time Award
Dr. David D. Kim at Kim Bariatric Institute receives top award signifying his efficiency and commitment to minimizing wait times for patients.
Dallas, TX – In a recent study by Vitals, an online resource designed to provide consumers with tools to find information about doctors and medical procedures in their area, it was estimated that 10 percent of individuals said long periods spent in the waiting room were good enough reasons to go searching for another doctor. With that in mind, the Vitals organization created an annual recognition for doctors found to be efficient managers of their patients’ time, and a Dallas bariatric surgeon at Kim Bariatric Institute is one of the most recent honorees.
Dr. David Kim has been given a 2014 Vitals On-Time Award based on patient ratings evaluating how long individuals had to wait to see him. Dr. Kim says he is very proud to earn the distinction, which recognizes his commitment to making patient visits to his weight loss surgery practice as convenient as possible. Dr. Kim notes that, while he offers patients some of the latest technology and techniques designed to help them effectively combat morbid obesity, he also makes it a priority at Kim Bariatric Institute to give them an efficient overall experience.
In addition to effective management of patient wait times, the select group of doctors who receive the Vitals On-Time Award must also have an overall patient rating of three or higher on a four-point rating scale, as well as a medical license in good standing with no sanctions.
Dr. Kim says the award means a great deal to him since Vitals has become one of the go-to resources for people looking for doctors and medical options in their communities. Vitals estimates that more than 100 million people utilize its websites when researching a variety of issues related to medical care.
