Marina del Rey, Calif. (PRWEB) January 06, 2016
DISC Sports & Spine Center (“DISC”) today announced that 13 of its physicians have been named top doctors in Southern California by the 2016 Southern California Super Doctors®. With the number of doctors receiving this honor limited to approximately five percent of the region’s active physicians, DISC’s stellar showing represents the center’s ongoing commitment to excellence in patient care.
For 2016, DISC’s physicians on the Southern California Super Doctors list include neurological spine surgeons Robert S. Bray, Jr., Richard B. Kim and Amir Vokshoor; orthopedic spine surgeons Sanjay K. Khurana, Hooman M. Melamed and Hamid Mir; orthopedic surgeons Gary Brazina, Frederic G. Nicola, John J. Regan and Andrew Yun; pain management experts Glenn M. Lipton and Michael Port; and physical medicine & rehabilitation expert Katrina M. Vlachos. Additionally, physical medicine & rehabilitation expert Sarah Miller was included in the 2015 Southern California Rising Stars list.
Since 2005, MSP Communications has published Super Doctors lists across the country in newspapers, inserts and magazine special sections devoted to Super Doctors. Honorees are also found online at http://www.superdoctors.com, where selected doctors can be searched by name, medical specialty and location.
Each year, MSP Communications undertakes a rigorous multi-phase selection process that includes a survey of doctors, independent evaluation of candidates by the research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area, and a good-standing and disciplinary check. As a part of this evaluation, physicians are asked to consider the following question: “If you needed medical care in one of the following practice areas, which doctor would you choose?”
“We are truly honored to have so many DISC doctors chosen for this year’s Southern California Super Doctors list,” said Dr. Robert S. Bray, Jr., DISC’s founder and one of neurological spine surgeons included by Super Doctors. “These honors are a testament to the strength of our physician team and the high level of standards we have instilled for patient care.”
Beyond attracting and maintaining a staff of highly rated physicians, DISC continues to transform patient care in the outpatient setting through its preferred partnership with Surgical Care Affiliates (SCA), a national leader in the development and implementation of strategies that improve the quality and efficiency of surgery services.
