Dr. Garrett Bennett Wins Prestigious Vitals On-Time Award
Award Recognizes Doctors Who Provide Prompt and Effective Care Based on Patient Feedback
New York, NY — June 17, 2015 — Vitals, a leader in providing online transparency tools and data that help consumers find top doctors and make informed decisions about their medical care, is pleased to announce that Dr. Garrett Bennett has won a 2014 Vitals On-Time Award.
Each year, Vitals receives millions of patient-reported ratings on various components of their doctor’s care, including how long a patient waits to see the doctor. Vitals On-Time Award recognizes doctors who manage their practice effectively and efficiently.
“No one wants to wait long when they’re sick,” said Mitch Rothschild, CEO of Vitals. “As more people turn to online physician-rating sites to find a doctor, wait time is an increasingly important factor that impacts their choice, and ultimately their relationship with their physician.”
In fact, 10 percent of people in a recent Vitals study said long waits would be reason enough to find a new doctor. The national average wait time to see a physician is over 20 minutes. Yet, doctors who won Vitals On-Time Award had an average of only 11 minutes with Dr. Bennett’s average wait time of only 6 minutes. In addition, Vitals On-Time Award winners must have an overall patient rating of at least 3.0 or higher (out of 4.0). Doctor Bennett has a perfect rating of 4.0. Winning doctors must also have a medical license in good standing with no sanctions.
Dr. Garrett Bennett said, “My staff and I take great pride in making you, as a patient, feel very comfortable the minute you walk into the office. Before the visit, we will gather as much information as possible to make your appointment be just about the medical care that you need. We also do everything we can to have you seen within minutes of your appointed time.”
