Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
Beverly Hills retinal ophthalmologist David Parks, MD has been selected to the prestigious Top Doctors List by U.S. News & World Report. He is one of six surgeons at La Peer Health Systems to be named a “Top Doctor”.
"I am incredibly honored to have received this honor," Dr. Parks said. "This would not be possible without the help of my team. This award reflects the hard work of each and every one of them. I couldn't be more proud."
U.S. News has developed the “Top Doctors” list in collaborative effort along with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. For nearly two decades, Castle Connolly has compiled a list of the nation’s top doctors, and they base their list on nominations from other doctors (doctors cannot nominate themselves). The list is further narrowed after a comprehensive review by a physician-led research team.
The Top Doctors list is classified by location and hospital affiliations across a wide range of medical specialties and subspecialties. All together, the Top Doctors treat over 2,000 diseases, medical issues, and procedures.
David J. Parks, MD is a highly skilled and extensively trained board-certified ophthalmologist in Beverly Hills. He graduated with honors from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, received an Internal Medicine internship at University Hospital in Long Island, and completing an Ophthalmology residency at Krieger Eye Institute at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore.
