Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
An incredible 17 doctors at La Peer Health Systems have been named Los Angeles Magazine’s list of Super Doctors.
Super Doctors is a directory of some of the most outstanding physicians of more than 40 medical specialties. Each was selected because of a high degree of peer recognition or professional achievement. With so many doctors named to this list, La Peer Health Systems should be regarded as one of the premier surgery centers in Beverly Hills.
“There are a lot of extremely talented surgeons at La Peer,” said Dr. Joseph Isaacson, an orthopedic surgeon at La Peer. “I am honored to be a part of such a talented team of surgeons.”
In selecting physicians for Super Doctors, Key Professional Media employs a rigorous multi-step process designed to identify physicians who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Super Doctors is a selective yet diverse listing of outstanding doctors, representing consumer-oriented medical specialties.
Doctors are asked nominate doctors who, if they needed medical care, they would choose for their own care. A research staff also adds candidates by searching medical databases, online sources, and publications. The candidates are evaluated on 10 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. A blue ribbon panel reviews the list of candidates and a final tally is made.
Approximately 5 percent of the physicians within the respective state or region are named to Super Doctors
