About Dr. Das

Philosophy of care

While I think of medicine as a science with evidence for the treatments that we offer to patients, I also think it is an art. There is no perfect answer for everyone — treatment needs to individualized based on the individual needs and goals of the patient. I always think about how I would treat this patient if I were recommending treatment to a family member.

Whether a patient needs surgery or nonoperative treatments, good medical care is a process to get a patient from injury or disease to treatment success and I like to remain involved in that complete process.

Why I entered medicine

I entered medicine because I wanted to help people as well as be challenged intellectually. I chose orthopedics, and specifically sports medicine, due to my passion for being active and playing sports while growing up. I played baseball, wrestled in high school and participated in intramural sports while in college. Fitness and sports continue to be an important part of my own life today.

While I have never required surgery, I have had several broken bones including an ankle fracture as a first year medical student. Dealing with those injuries helped give me some perspective on recovery and the importance of therapy in conjunction with the treatment provided by a surgeon.

Community involvement

I’ve participated in various races where the money raised was donated to numerous charities including the Wounded Warrior Project, as well as several community outreach projects while in school and training in Philadelphia, such as Habitat For Humanity and some public health outreach while in medical school.

Personal interests

My personal interests include sports such as football, baseball and hockey as well as keeping fit by running, lifting weights and biking. I also enjoy other outdoor activities such as fishing, grilling and camping.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
