TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Toronto chiropractor Dr. Brian Dower recently received the OpenCare.com Patients' Choice Award for 2014. This award comes just after Dr. Dower won a second year as the Top Chiropractor of 2014 in the City of Toronto during Canada's Top Choice Awards Survey for 2014. Dr. Dower says he is thrilled with the honors, and that he intends to keep striving to provide the advanced care that his patients need to optimize their health. Patients say that Dr. Dower has restored their excitement for life after helping them recover from back pain and other conditions.

While the Top Chiropractor in Toronto award is chosen based on voluntary patient surveys, OpenCare.com compiles the research for their award by sifting through third-party and statistical sources such as patient reviews on Yelp, Google, Rate MDs, North 49 and their own database of patient reviews. They also factor in Better Business Bureau ratings, years of experience, and whether or not the doctor has any professional misconduct records.

According to Dr. Dower, to be singled out for award-winning care by OpenCare.com is an honor. "Patients writing reviews on these sites are often sharing raw, unfiltered opinions about their experience with chiropractic care. And the OpenCare folks also do a lot of third-party statistical research to make the results even more unbiased. So the process is fairly intense, and patients are not just taking a survey sometime after the fact. So to know that my patients' gut reactions after working with me were so positive is truly humbling. It just makes me want to keep going above and beyond for them in this job that I am already so passionate about."

Dr. Dower mentions that many chiropractors in Toronto and elsewhere find Yelp to be a particularly tough crowd when it comes to patient reviews, but his listing there is all 5 stars. One of his patient reviewers raves, "His adjustments are always fantastic!" and that she considers chiropractic care with Dr. Dower as an essential part of her normal healthcare regimen. Several other patient reviewers have written similar stories.

According to Dr. Dower, he will not be resting on his laurels. "Helping my patients get healthy and pain-free is what drives me every day; I love it. And my patients never cease to inspire me. It's an honor to know that I've helped inspire them—I'm very grateful for all of their kind reviews! And I'm just going to keep on learning and working as hard as I can to provide what they consider to be award-winning care every day."

Dr. Brian Dower is a chiropractor in Toronto who provides chiropractic spinal adjustments, acupuncture, laser therapy and ergonomics and lifestyle counseling for people overcoming back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines and many other conditions.
