Dr. Reid received the Most Compassionate Doctor Award (2013) and the Patients’ Choice Award (2012 and 2013) from Vitals. The Patients’ Choice Award goes to just 5% of the nation’s active physicians; it’s based on patient reports of the care they received, including bedside manner, doctor-patient face time, degree of follow-up, and courtesy of office staff. Hundreds of thousands of patients across the U.S. provided feedback about their doctors each year and only those doctors who receive near-perfect scores receive this award.

He also received the Prieskel Elective Award from The Royal College of Surgeons of England and the Amulree Elective Award from the University College London Medical School.

His professional publications include topics in neurosurgery and spinal surgery.
