200 UW Health Physicians Named to 2015-16 Best Doctors in America List
Madison, Wisconsin - More than 200 UW Health physicians appear on the Best Doctors in America® List for 2015-2016, officials have announced. Only five percent of doctors in America earn this prestigious honor.
The list is a product of validated peer review, in which doctors who excel in their specialties are selected by their peers in the profession. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the Best Doctors database, nor are they paid to provide their input.
Best Doctors works with expert physicians from its Best Doctors in America® List to help its 30 million members worldwide get the right diagnosis and right treatment.
The Best Doctors in America® List, assembled by Best Doctors, Inc. and audited and certified by Gallup®, results from exhaustive polling of more than 40,000 physicians in the United States. Doctors in more than 40 specialties and 400 subspecialties of medicine appear on this year's list.
In a confidential review, current physician listees answer the question, "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?" Best Doctors, Inc. evaluates the review results, and verifies all additional information to meet detailed inclusion criteria.
- UW School of Medicine and Public Health, the nation's only combined school of medicine and public health
