"These types of awards are valuable tools that can help patients find well qualified physicians within a given medical specialty"
DALLAS (PRWEB) February 14, 2023
Dallas plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, has been honored by his peers as one of the best plastic surgeons in the United States by Castle Connolly's Top Doctor program.
For over 30 years, the program, which is designed to help patients find the best healthcare providers in established medical specialties such as plastic surgery, carefully screens and selects physicians through a rigorous peer review process.
During the nomination process, Castle Connolly contacts more than 50,000 licensed healthcare professionals nationwide to obtain nominations and feedback about the best doctors practicing in the United States today. They are asked to identify and nominate the most outstanding physicians in their medical specialty which they consider to be top doctors in their region, or nationwide. In this program, self-nominations are strictly forbidden.
A physician-led team of researchers reviews each nominee and checks the candidate's background, medical education, board certification status, hospital privileges, educational appointments, and professional recognitions and achievements. The group also reviews malpractice and disciplinary history to further screen the candidates. The final award recipients are selected by Castle Connolly editors together with the research team.
"This award is especially significant, in part, because it is primarily derived though peer nomination," says Dr. Rohrich. "The peer review process is an important component of reliable medical information."
A well-known advocate for patient safety, Dr. Rohrich lectures frequently around the world at surgical conferences and educational meetings promoting safe and effective as well as innovative plastic surgery practices. Dr. Rohrich serves as chairman for the Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting and its partner conference, the Dallas Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine Meeting. He has been ranked as the best plastic surgeon in the United States for both rhinoplasty and facelifts by Newsweek magazine.
"I am honored to have been selected as a Top Doctor," says Dr. Rohrich. "These types of awards are valuable tools that can help patients find well qualified physicians within a given medical specialty all around the world. Patients should always do their research and choose their surgeon carefully. Make sure he or she is board certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties, and has the expertise and the experience to deliver a safe and satisfactory outcome."
