This is an especially notable designation as Dr. Coligado is not only a valued member of Spine Team Texas, but his work and devotion to the field of spine care has been recognized by those outside our practice,"

Spine Team Texas, a comprehensive spine center specializing in the treatment of back and neck pain, is proud to announce one of their physicians has been named a Top Doctor by Fort Worth, Texas magazine. Dr. Eric Coligado, a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist, was designated by his peers to this select group of leading medical professionals.

"This is an especially notable designation as Dr. Coligado is not only a valued member of Spine Team Texas, but his work and devotion to the field of spine care has been recognized by those outside our practice," said Mark Hood, CEO of Spine Team Texas.

Fort Worth, Texas magazine sent more than 4,500 local physicians a survey, asking them to voluntarily rate their peers and name the best doctors in Tarrant County. Medical professionals willing to participate went online to cast their votes. While Fort Worth, Texas magazine provided the fields of specialty, the physicians identified the professionals they regard as being leaders in those fields. The final results were submitted to a select panel of physicians for review.

Sample ballots notifying the medical community of the voting process and the ballot website address were mailed to the members of the Tarrant County Medical Society and the Texas Osteopathic Medical Association. Voting took place online. Those voting had to supply credential numbers in order to be able to participate. The Top Doctors results will be revealed in the April issue of the home and lifestyle magazine.
