About Dr. Das

Philosophy of care

I think of medicine as a science and an art. There is no perfect answer for everyone — treatment needs to be based on your individual needs and goals. Whether or not a patient needs surgery, 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 and be challenged intellectually. I chose orthopedics, and specifically sports medicine, due to my passion for being active and playing sports while growing up. Fitness and sports remain an important part of my own life today. I have never required surgery, but have had several broken bones, including an ankle fracture in medical school. Dealing with those injuries provided me perspective on recovery and the importance of therapy in conjunction with surgical treatment.

Community involvement

I’ve participated in races raising money for various charities, including the Wounded Warrior Project, as well as community outreach projects during school and training in Philadelphia, such as Habitat For Humanity. I did public health outreach while in medical school.

Personal interests

My personal interests include football, baseball and hockey, as well as keeping fit by running, lifting weights and biking. I also enjoy food, especially grilling/smoking meat.

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.
