Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 08, 2013
Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey M. Kenkel, has been selected in the latest listing of Top Doctors released by US News and World Report. The annual listing identifies physicians who are considered to be in the top of their medical specialty in the United States.
The Top Doctors list is a collaboration between Castle Connolly and US News and World Report. Inclusion starts by peer nomination process. Each physician can nominate up to 10 doctors in their own specialty and up to 3 additional specialties. The nominations are then reviewed and screened by a physician directed research team.
The recognition is strictly by peer nominations and independent review. No doctor can pay to be included on the list and no hospitals or affiliates can pay to have their physicians included.
“I’m honored to have been selected as a US News Top Doctor,” says Dr. Kenkel. “National, peer reviewed recognitions such as Top Doctors can be a useful resource for patients seeking a well qualified plastic surgeon.”
In addition to being selected as a Top Doctor, the program has also given Dr. Kenkel a special designation that identifies him as being in the top 1% in his specialty of plastic surgery. Unlike other US News listings, the Top Doctors list is not ranked. However, this special designation shows doctors who stand out, even from other Top Doctors.
“I always encourage patients to select their plastic surgeon carefully," explains Dr. Kenkel. "Make sure that your plastic surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and that he or she operates in an accredited facility.”
