Benjamin T. Secoy, OD, Wins "Independent Doctor Award" From Patient Fusion

BALLWIN, Mo., July 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Benjamin T. Secoy, OD, a local Ballwin optometrist, has been recognized as a top Independent Doctor in the US for his contributions to the health of the community. As one of the best reviewed doctors on Patient Fusion, a website allowing patients to find and book appointments with the best doctors in their area, Dr. Secoy demonstrates a clear commitment to the well-being of his local patient community.

Dr. Secoy runs his Ballwin practice independently at a time when many providers are being incorporated into hospital chains and losing their close personal connection with local patients. To keep his practice thriving, Dr. Secoy uses health technology that helps him improve efficiency and spend more time with patients while letting him provide innovative methods of care and online access for patients to view their health records.

"I have been a patient at Manchester Eye Care for over 20 years, even before Dr. Secoy," said online patient reviewer Vickie. "My entire family drives from St. Charles County to see Dr. Secoy. He and his staff are professional and courteous. He addresses concerns with patience and kindness."

Patients can use the Patient Fusion website to learn more about Dr. Secoy's expertise and book appointments online, anytime. As a doctor on Patient Fusion, Dr. Secoy also uses the Practice Fusion electronic medical record (EMR) system, allowing him to give patients access to an online portal with the patient's medical records and medical spending tracking—helping patients save money and stay healthy by making better health decisions. Dr. Secoy is an active user of the feature, having granted access to hundreds of patients.
