Encinitas, California (PRWEB) November 23, 2014
North Coast Health Center, the largest outpatient medical facility in coastal North County San Diego, is pleased to announce that 14 of its physicians have been named a “Top Doctor” by the San Diego County Medical Society (SDCMS) and San Diego Magazine. Every year, SDCMS, in collaboration with San Diego Magazine, honors the “Top Doctors” in San Diego County as recognized by their peers.
“It’s a great privilege to be recognized by your peers as a top physician,” stated Dr. Georgine Jorgensen, M.D. of North Coast Family Medical Group. “We always strive to provide the best care and services for families in North County, and having five of our own physicians make the ‘Top Doctor’ list is a great accomplishment.”
“The nominations process for the Top Doctor list is unlike any other in our field,” explained Dr. Bari Cunningham of Comprehensive Dermatology. “Those who make the list have been nominated by their peers as someone they’d trust to treat their own family members. We always hold this nomination in high regard, and it’s an honor to make the list again this year.”
