Scripps posts doctor ratings
San Diego Union-Tribune

Scripps Health is among the first in the nation to post patient-satisfaction scores for some of its doctors.

Scripps recently added five-star ratings to its online profiles of 434 physicians, a little more than half of the members of Scripps Clinic and Scripps Coastal Medical Center, the organization’s two main medical groups.

The ratings represent a weighted average of scores recorded on patient-satisfaction surveys performed by Press Ganey, a company that works with about half of the hospitals in the United States to gauge health care quality.
