Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Sameer Jejurikar Patients Honor Him With “Compassionate Doctor Certification”
Compassionate Doctor Certification might be described as the Peoples’ Choice Awards of the medical world. Reviews of doctors collected from Vitals.com, UCompareHealthCare.com, and similar sites determine what physicians are considered for the honor.
There are 870,000 doctors practicing in the US. Yearly, only 26,100 of those practitioners receive Compassionate Doctor Certification. It is the patients who ultimately determine the recipients of the certification. In 2012 Dallas Texas based Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Sameer Jejurikar received the honor. Dr. Jejurikar’s patients gave him a 4.6 out of a possible five-star rating.
In practice, for over two decades the bulk of Dr. Jejurikar’s training comes from the University of Michigan. Both his undergraduate and Medical Degree are from that School. His residency in Plastic Surgery was completed at the University of Michigan Medical Center. Dr. Jejurikar also studied at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital.
