BENGTSON RECEIVES NATIONAL AND LOCAL HONORS FOR PLASTIC SURGERY
Dr. Bengtson of the Bengtson Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery receives two awards building credibility for local plastic surgery expertise with national reach
Grand Rapids, Mich., January 28, 2011 ─ As the capabilities found on Grand Rapid’s Medical Mile continue to grow, included are those specific to plastic surgery. Today, the Bengtson Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery announced two awards recently bestowed upon Dr. Bradley Bengtson. The first, originated by Grand Rapids Magazine, awarded Dr. Bengtson with the title of “Grand Rapid’s Best Plastic Surgeon.” Votes from readers placed Dr. Bengtson at the top of the list. Grand Rapids Magazine announced the winners of its “Best of Grand Rapids” categories in this month’s issue.
On the heels of this new honor, Dr. Bengtson also learned of the retention of his listing as one of the Best Doctors in America®, compiled by Boston-based Best Doctors, Inc. In order to earn a place among this list, doctors are voted on by more than 45,000 physicians in the United States. Only those doctors recognized to be in the top three to five percent of their specialty earn the honor of being named one of the Best Doctors in America®. Dr. Bengtson has now held this position in the plastic surgery specialty for 16 years.
Best Doctors in America is a database of excellence in medicine built through a confidential, peer-review process not involving any type of compensation. The only way to be recognized is for a doctor to earn high marks for clinical ability from his or her peers.
“I’m honored to receive these awards and excited about the year ahead. The Bengtson Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery and transforMD Skin Care Center offer completely unique concierge plastic surgery and aesthetics offerings to West Michigan and our patients. We’re planning on 2011 bringing many technologies and products, yet we’ll keep our focus on excellence in care, outcome, and exceptional overall experience.” said Dr. Bengtson.
In May 2010 Bengtson Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery moved to the Women’s Health Center of West Michigan on Grand Rapid’s Medical Mile. The move equipped Bengtson Center to provide a more-intimate, welcoming environment for its patients while maintaining a variety of services, advanced research initiatives, and cutting-edge technology unique to West Michigan.
