Paradise Valley, Arizona (PRWEB) April 10, 2011
Earning recognition as one of the Phoenix area's "Top Doctors" is an honor that many physicians strive to achieve just once. One plastic surgeon in Phoenix, Dr. Robert Cohen (http://www.scottsdalecenterforplasticsurgery.com), recently earned that distinction for a remarkable second time in the last three years.
"I am humbled that my peers have seen fit to select me once again as a 'Top Doctor' in plastic surgery for the Phoenix and Scottsdale area," remarked Dr. Cohen. "It is rewarding to have my hard work and dedication recognized by both the medical community and PHOENIX magazine."
In addition to this hard work and dedication, Dr. Cohen is also recognized for his high degree of skill and training in procedures such as breast augmentation and liposuction in Phoenix. Physicians nominate the "Top Doctors" based on who they believe are the most qualified doctors in each specialty, and who they would use for their own family members.
PHOENIX magazine's "Top Doctor" designation is determined through a survey of 5,000 randomly selected Phoenix area physicians. The survey asks these medical, osteopathic, and naturopathic doctors to nominate physicians who, in their judgment, are the best in their field. Only board-certified physicians are considered for "Top Doctor" status. The editorial staff of PHOENIX magazine then performs background checks to eliminate any nominees with malpractice convictions or ethical lapses.
According to PHOENIX magazine, the "Top Doctors" list is provided as a service to its readers, and "peer-review is considered the most reliable methodology" for determining the best physicians in a given field.
"This award reflects the reputation a doctor has built among his or her peers in the medical community," says Dr. Cohen, "which is why patients frequently look to the Phoenix magazine ‘Top Doctor’ issue for guidance when selecting a surgeon. I always remind patients that this is only one data point when looking for a plastic surgeon. They should still check each surgeon’s background and training, website before and after photos, and should speak with the surgeon to make sure they are a good match prior to scheduling surgery."
Dr. Cohen's personalized approach, natural results, and impeccable safety record have earned him a reputation that draws patients from throughout the United States and abroad for procedures such as tummy tuck, breast lift, and facelift in Phoenix. His commitment to excellence in all aspects of plastic surgery has earned him numerous prestigious speaking engagements, as well as many awards and distinctions.
Dr. Robert Cohen is a board-certified plastic surgeon and founder of the Scottsdale Center for Plastic Surgery (http://www.scottsdalecenterforplasticsurgery.com), offering extensive options for plastic surgery procedures such as breast augmentation for Phoenix women. Dr. Cohen received his medical degree from Tulane University School of Medicine and trained in general and plastic surgery at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Dr. Cohen also received advanced surgery training at the prestigious W. Grant Stevens aesthetic surgery fellowship. He has presented numerous plastic surgery research studies through peer-reviewed journals and professional societies, and is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
