Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
Kidney Specialists of Southern Nevada (KSOSN), a leading nephrology practice based in Las Vegas, announced its physicians have been recognized as Top Doctors by Las Vegas Life magazine. This represents the practice’s second consecutive year in which its physicians have received such distinction.
Las Vegas Life magazine partnered with Seattle-based Avvo to publish its “Top Doctors 2012” issue. Using a proprietary algorithm, Avvo rates professionals in the dental, legal and medical fields. Physicians are dynamically ranked on a 10-point scale which factors in peer endorsements, experience, education, training, research, publishing and awards. This year, the survey honored Marvin Bernstein, MD; Venugopal Botla, MD; Lawrence Lehrner, MD; Marc Leiserowitz, MD; Cristy Ann Robertson, MD and Vincent L. Yang, MD as top doctors in Nephrology.
“We are honored beyond words that of the ten physicians recognized in nephrology, six are doctors in our practice,” said Lawrence Lehrner, President of KSOSN. “We have made it a goal since day one to ensure our practice is delivering cutting edge treatments for patients battling kidney disease while also maintaining open communication with referring physicians in an effort to maximize care. It’s an incredible accomplishment to know that our efforts are recognized for what KSOSN is doing for kidney patients in Las Vegas.”
The Top Doctors issue is popular with readers as the survey results aid in their pursuit of the best medical care in the area. This year’s survey recognizes 270 physicians in 34 different specialties.
KSOSN is located at 500 South Rancho Drive, Suite # 12 in Las Vegas, Nevada. They can be reached at (702) 877-1887 or via the web at http://www.KSOSN.com.
