Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
Joseph Isaacson, M.D., a Los Angeles orthopedic surgeon at La Peer Health Systems, has been honored as one of Southern California’s SuperDoctors® for the second year in a row. He is featured in Los Angeles magazine's January 2013 issue. The SuperDoctors® designation is an honor reserved for only the most elite doctors, based on professional achievement and nominated by their fellow surgeons, doctors, and other medical professionals.
The SuperDoctors® title is reserved for only 5% of all physicians in Southern California, and Dr. Isaacson is again recognized this year for his remarkable work in the orthopedic field and his leadership in the community.
“When your peers select you as a SuperDoctor®, it is an incredible honor,” Dr. Isaacson said. “I hope to continue improving patient care in 2013 and beyond.”
The SuperDoctors® selection process involves a “rigorous multi-step process designed to identify physicians who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.” Doctors begin the process by naming those few who they themselves would choose for their own medical care.
For two consecutive years, Dr. Joseph Isaacson has been honored as a SuperDoctor®. He is featured in the January 2013 edition of Los Angeles magazine and is highlighted on the SuperDoctors® website for his excellent reputation in the field of orthopedic surgery.
