“What makes the Super Doctors list such a significant achievement is the detailed selection criteria.

Spine Team Texas is proud to announce Ryan S. Reeves, M.D., and Eric J. Coligado, M.D., are both included in the MSP Communications exclusive list of esteemed physicians. MSP Communications, researcher and publisher of the annual Super Doctors® list, employs a rigorous, multi-step process to select physicians for inclusion in their publication that recognizes a diverse pool of medical doctors over various specialties.

“What makes the Super Doctors list such a significant achievement is the detailed selection criteria,” said Mark Hood, C.E.O. of Spine Team Texas. “Not only are physicians vetted for professional accomplishments, they must also have attained peer recognition during the period of time they’ve been in practice.”

Dr. Reeves’ inclusion on the Super Doctors list this year follows his presence on the Rising Star™ Super Doctor list in both 2013 and 2014. Rising Star candidates are evaluated over 10 areas including fellowships, professional activities, leadership positions, board certifications, honors and awards and have been fully licensed to practice for approximately 10 years or fewer. While approximately 5 percent of the physicians within Texas are named to Super Doctors, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list. Dr. Reeves also recently received the distinguished Castle-Connelly “Top Doctors” nomination by his peers.

Dr. Eric Coligado is making his third consecutive appearance on the Super Doctors list this year. Since 2009, Dr. Coligado has consistently been listed in the Consumers’ Research Council of America’s “Guide to America’s Top Physicians,” and he’s been nominated as a “Top Doc” in his specialty by members of the Tarrant County Medical Society in Fort Worth Magazine seven times. He also recently received the distinguished Castle-Connelly “Top Doctors” nomination by his peers.

Each year MSP Communications invites doctors to nominate colleagues they know to be exceptional in their specified field. Physicians are posed this question: If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose? Numerous safeguards are in place to prevent ballot manipulation and doctors may not self-nominate. Their research staff then searches medical databases, online sources, and publications for doctors who have attained certain credentials, honors or professional achievements.

Nominees are then grouped into specialties and those with the highest scores from the nomination and evaluation steps are invited to serve on a "blue ribbon panel." Each panelist reviews and evaluates a list of nominees from his/her area of focus. Finally points are tallied with only the highest-scoring doctors included on the Super Doctors list. The research staff also independently reviews the discipline record of each candidate before publication and verifies that the doctor is active and in good standing.

Those physicians on the Super Doctors’ list can be searched online by the general public by name, location, or area of specialty at SuperDoctors.com. The list is published in the December issue of Texas Monthly magazine.
