Dr. Sameer Jejurikar: The 3% Doctor
Currently, the US population consists of over 300 million inhabitants(Census.gov, 2017). If we take into account the multiple US territories; such as Puerto Rico, American Samoa, and the Virgin Islands, the population increases to over 500 million. With a population that large, it is only natural that there will be a large number of physicians that specialize in many different areas of medicine. Although the number of medical doctors is quite large, today we will talk about only one: Dr. Sameer Jejurikar, M.D.
Dr. Jejurikar is a plastic surgeon that has his office in Dallas, Texas with a secondary office in Denton, Texas. He specializes in cosmetic surgery of the eyes, face, and torso. His practices are always top of the line and he uses the technology that is best suited for his patients. What is most impacting about Dr. Jejurikar is the fact that he is a 3% doctor. This statement might be a little confusing but this is actually a great compliment because this means that he is part of the top 3%.
In most cases, to be part of the majority means to be average. Although being part of the average is not a bad thing, in many practices, people look for above average. For this reason, we honor Dr. Jejurikar. In 2012, out of 870,000 doctors in multiple areas, He was part of the 3% that are awarded the 2012 Compassionate Doctor Certification(prnewswire.com, 2012). This certification is awarded because the patients chose it by vote, but on top of that, the American Registry seconded this by adding him to the Registry of Business Excellence. Although Dr. Sam uses the best techniques and technology available for his patients, what sets him apart from the rest is the care he has for all of his patients.
