The percentages shown is a percent of the total number of patients seen at Surgical Artistry from inception in 2006 to 4/27/13. Sorted based on percentage of population served per zip code. Population data is in the chart below. 95355 is our zip code of our plastic surgery office (2336 Sylvan Ave. Suite C, Modesto, CA 95355).
Let’s not forget about Oakdale, Hughson, Riverbank, Ripon, and Turlock.
I guess it’s no big surprise that most of our patients come from Modesto, because we are located in Modesto.
44% of our patients come from Modesto and the remaining popular cities making up 18% of our patients come from: Oakdale, Hughson, Riverbank, Ripon, and Turlock.
I like to exercise my knowledge of spreadsheets
Spreadsheets are very useful for keeping track of medical data, especially for experiments. I value spreadsheet skills as a doctor, and feel that if I can efficiently track things, I can eventually improve upon them.
Today I practiced using a pivot table to extract data from our electronic medical record. I figured out the top 10 zip codes of our Surgical Artistry Patients (including acupuncture, veins, Botox, fillers, breast augmentation, tummy tucks, and other plastic surgery patients).
I got help from this page on Pivot Tables
- Select the column containing the data
- On the Data menu, click Pivot Table and Pivot Chart
- Click Finish
- Drag and drop the column label (in this case it was “zip”) into the drop Row Fields Here (from Pivot Table Field List)
- Drag and drop the same column label above into the Drop Data Items Here (from Pivot Table Field List)
Zip Codes of various parts of Cities
These were tallied up with an absolute count and I used further spreadsheet skills to convert that into a percentage of our patients.
2010 Census Data
I went to www.zip-codes.com for fun to see the total population and I sorted above chart in order of percentage of the entire population which we served. I didn’t show the data here because it’s boring data. But for example we could say that of the area code 95356, Surgical Artistry has served about 1.1% of that population. Below’s chart shows the top 24 zip codes served by Surgical Artistry. Avg = Average House Cost / Value as determined by 2010 census and source is zip-codes.com.
