Tired of getting stuck in your doctor's waiting room?  A consumer magazine recomends you try a specific hospital in town.

Consumer Reports is out with a new ranking of California's medical groups, and for Sacramento Sutter tops the list.  Dr. John Santa says they polled patients on a few factors,

"Communication, timely care and service, coordination of care, and helpfulness of the office staff."

This is the first time this kind of data has been made available through the magazine, and that it's all about some timely education.

"Well the Affordable Care Act is an additional incentive for us," added Dr. Santa.

For our area, Kaiser Permanente's North Valley doctors rank second, followed by Kaiser's South Sac MDs.  Hill Physicians and UC Davis tie for fourth, and Mercy came in fifth.
