Patient Approved Pledge

All health care providers (doctors, dentists, chiropractors, therapists, etc.) that show the Patient Approved® seal are committed to achieving excellence for their patients.

As a Patient Approved® health care provider, I promise to:

1. Be caring, sincere and empathetic at all times. I will instill trust and work toward helping every patient have a satisfying experience.

2. Be open to patient comments and respond to patient questions and concerns in a respectful and helpful manner.

3. Stay up-to-date with knowledge in my field and communicate my knowledge and opinions in a way that is easily understood by my patients.

4. Make sure that my patients can always quickly reach me or my designated assistant/associate.

5. Respect my patients. This includes minimizing the amount of time that patients wait for me prior to any appointment.

6. Provide an optimal environment for patient care. I will keep my facilities safe, clean and accessible.

7. Keep my professional designations and certifications up-to-date.

8. Maintain patient privacy based on each patient’s individual desires.
