Four Star Physicians at Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare

Published On 08/10/2010

Healthy Memphis Common Table’s magazine, Take Charge for Better Health, lists 4-star physicians in Greater Memphis chosen by over 50,000 people surveyed. Participants were surveyed about their experience as a patient: how well your provider communicates, how long you wait to be seen, and other key factors. 

The survey was part of a pilot program in partnership with Consumers’ CHECKBOOK, a non-profit research firm from Washington, D.C. The business, physician and health insurance communities also joined in this effort. 437 physicians were involved and full results can be found at www.healthymemphis.org

“We are proud to say that of the 98 physicians highlighted as 4-star, 78 have privileges at Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare,” said Gary S. Shorb, President/CEO of Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare.
