Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 28, 2012
As co-founders of Texas Fertility Center (TFC), Thomas Vaughn, MD and Kaylen Silverberg, MD have dedicated themselves to helping infertile couples achieve their dreams of becoming parents. Over the last 32 years, TFC families have welcomed over 12,000 babies into the world. Recently, Drs. Vaughn and Silverberg were nominated by their peers and named Top Doctors™ by Castle Connolly and U.S. News & World Report.
Published in U.S. News & World Report, the Top Doctors™ registry is comprised of doctors whom other physicians would recommend to their patients and to their own families. Doctors who earn this distinction are determined to be in the top 10 percent in their region.
“I appreciate this recognition for TFC, but our real reward comes from helping to create families,” Dr. Silverberg said. “Working with infertile couples to identify their fertility issues and then find a treatment that works is incredibly rewarding.”
Castle Connolly, a New York City-based company with nearly two decades of experience identifying the nation's top doctors, has teamed up with U.S. News & World Report to create a list that includes the top physicians throughout the nation. Top Doctors™ selections are based on nominations submitted by other doctors and reviewed by a physician-led research team.
When a couple can’t conceive, finding the right doctor can mean the difference between success and failure. Usually, consulting with a reproductive endocrinologist, an ob-gyn with advanced training and certification in the treatment of infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, and complicated minimally invasive fertility surgery is the best option.
“Having a compassionate, skilled doctor in your corner is so important when you can’t get pregnant,” explained a mother of three who struggled with secondary infertility. “You need someone who understands what’s at stake and is top-notch in their field.”
Often, patients are referred to a fertility specialist by an ob gyn or other primary care physician. These doctors choose someone that they believe provides quality patient care and outstanding diagnostic skills. Castle Connolly Medical LTD accepts the peer nominations and compiles the names of the recommended doctors for its annual Top Doctors™ list.
“At TFC, we work closely with obgyns and other doctors every day,” Dr. Vaughn explained. “We feel acknowledged each time we receive another referral. Our team is top-notch and this kind of national recognition affirms our commitment to excellence.”
