195 UVA Physicians Chosen for ‘Best Doctors in America’ List

195 UVA Physicians Chosen for ‘Best Doctors in America’ List
January 29, 2018

The “2017-2018 Best Doctors in America” List by Best Doctors Inc. honors 195 University of Virginia Health System physicians among the best in their respective specialties.

Approximately 4 percent of U.S. physicians are named to the list, according to Best Doctors Inc. “The 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,” the organization’s announcement said.

Selection to the list begins with a survey of the physicians named to the most recent Best Doctors list, who are asked: If you or a loved one needed a physician in your specialty, to whom would you refer? Best Doctors Inc. then reviews and verifies the credentials of each physician selected through the survey before finalizing the list.

“I am pleased to see such a large group of our dedicated physicians honored for the excellent, specialized care they provide in collaboration with their colleagues from across UVA Health System,” said Dr. David S. Wilkes, dean of the UVA School of Medicine.
