Sangeetha Murthy, MD, Wins "Independent Doctor Award" from Patient Fusion

SAN DIEGO, July 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sangeetha Murthy, MD, a local San Diego internal medicine practitioner, has been recognized as a top Independent Doctor in the US for her 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. Murthy demonstrates a clear commitment to the well-being of her local patient community.

Dr. Murthy received her medical training from Kasturba Medical College in India and completed her residency in Baltimore. She started her San Diego practice in 2003, which she runs independently at a time when many providers are being incorporated into hospital chains and losing their close personal connection with local patients. To keep her practice thriving, Dr. Murthy uses health technology that helps her improve efficiency and spend more time with patients while letting her provide innovative methods of care and online access for patients to view their health records.

"Dr Murthy is an excellent primary care doctor," said online patient reviewer Russell. "She takes all the time necessary to spend with her patients and monitors all test results and reports from other doctors conscientiously."

Patients can use the Patient Fusion website to learn more about Dr. Murthy's expertise and book appointments online, anytime. As a doctor on Patient Fusion, Dr. Murthy also uses the Practice Fusion electronic medical record (EMR) system, allowing her 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. Murthy is an active user of the feature, having granted access to hundreds of patients.
