Congratulations to Medicine Physicians, Named to 2017-2018 Best Doctors in America® List

Seventy-six (76) faculty physicians in the Department of Medicine have been named to the 2017-2018 Best Doctors in America® list. Only five percent of doctors in America earn this peer selected honor as a result of the biennial Best Doctors Poll.

Physicians included in the Best Doctors in America® database provide the most advanced medical expertise and knowledge to patients with serious conditions – often saving lives in the process by finding the right diagnosis and right treatment.

A selected Best Doctor doesn’t remain in the database forever. The peer-review process requires every listed physician to be re-evaluated by their peers in each poll. Best Doctors does not pay physicians to be included in the database, nor can physicians or their organizations pay Best Doctors. A physician cannot apply to become a Best Doctors physician. The only way for a physician to be selected is to be nominated by and then receive voting consensus from current Best Doctors physicians.

Congratulations to the following faculty physicians in the department of medicine, by division.
