Last month we learned that 80 of our providers at UNC Medical Center had more than 94% of their patients respond “Yes, definitely!” to the question asking whether patients would recommend their provider's office to friends and family, which places them in the top quartile nationally. For more than 20 of our providers, 100% of patients responded “Yes, Definitely!” See which providers received 100% and read what some of their patients had to say about them. We thank each of these individuals for their leadership in helping to create an exceptional patient experience and congratulate them on this award.
John Boggess, MD
"I have always received considerate and concerned care from Dr. Boggess and his staff. He is fully aware of my oncology issues and has always met my needs both in and out of the office location. I have full confidence in his ability to recommend the best possible treatment for me and to keep me appraised of any changes in my gynecologic health."

Tim Carey, MD

Paul Hayashi, MD
"Everyone I encountered from check-in to check-out was helpful and made me feel comfortable as a patient. Dr. Hayashi spent about an hour with me during our initial visit, and that was more time than I thought any physician would spend with their patient - I appreciate that beyond words can explain. I think Dr. Hayashi is an excellent provider and I'm thankful he is a part of my patient care team."
E. Claire Dees, MD
Dr. Dees has been my oncologist since 2007. I have high respect for her abilities and advice and great affection for her as a person. She has guided me skillfully and compassionately through years of being a breast cancer survivor and I am so glad that my surgeon referred me to her when I was seeking an oncologist at the time of my diagnosis. Dr. Elizabeth (Claire) Dees is the best!

He is an outstanding doctor who gives me confidence that I am getting the best care available anywhere."
