La Peer Health Systems in Beverly Hills is proud to announce that 20 doctors, Dr. Sonu S. Ahluwalia, Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, Dr. Michel Babajania, Dr. Peyman Banooni, Dr. Liza M. Capiendo, Dr. Lisa Cassileth, Dr. Mark M. Davidson, Dr. Eiman Firoozmand, Dr. Gary H. Hoffman, Dr. Joseph Isaacson, Dr. Guy G. Massry, Dr. Steven W. Meier, Dr. Kiarash Michel, Dr. Eric S. Millstein, Dr. Beth Moore, Dr. Melvin Harvey Nutig, Dr. David E. Savar, Dr. Siamak Tabib, Dr. Andrew B. Weiss, and Dr. Mani Zadeh, have been named Los Angeles Magazine SuperDoctors®.

To be named a SuperDoctor®, doctors are nominated by their peers, and then reviewed by a physician-led research team. The La Peer doctors named to this prestigious list include orthopedic surgeons, gastroenterologists, otolaryngologists, urologists, colorectal surgeons, plastic surgeons, and gynecologists.

“It is an honor to be named among so many accomplished doctors,” said Dr. Azizzadeh. “The SuperDoctors® title is so prestigious because it is based on peer nominations and reputation in the field. I am truly grateful that the surrounding medical community thinks so highly of me and my practice.”

The SuperDoctors® selection process involves a rigorous and multi-step approach designed to identify doctors with exceptional peer recognition and professional achievement. Doctors within the same community are asked to nominate someone who they themselves would see for care within the various fields. Candidates are then evaluated based on criteria such as years of experience, leadership positions, academic contribution, research publications, and hospital appointments. A final panel of esteemed medical professionals then designates a select group of SuperDoctors® as the most outstanding physicians in their respective field.

The 20 La Peer doctors named SuperDoctors® represent eight different medical specialties. Six doctors in orthopedics, two in gastroenterology, two in otolaryngology, one in urology, three in colorectal surgery, two in oculoplastic surgery, one in plastic surgery, and one doctor in gynecology make up the eighteen SuperDoctors® practices.

“I am proud to have established a reputation for top quality care in Los Angeles,” said Dr. Steven W. Meier, a Beverly Hills orthopedic surgeon who has been named a SuperDoctor® for the sixth year in a row.

In addition to Dr. Meier, several other La Peer Health Systems doctors have been honored as SuperDoctors® repeatedly for their ongoing achievements in their fields. Dr. Millstein, Dr. Zadeh, Dr. Michel, Dr. Massry, Dr. Azizzadeh, and Dr. Banooni have all received the title four years in a row. Dr. Isaacson, Dr. Nutig, Dr. Weiss, Dr. Davidson, Dr. Tabib, Dr. Babajania, Dr. Capiendo, Dr. Firoozmand, Dr. Cassileth, Dr. Moore, Dr. Hoffman, and Dr. Savar have all been named SuperDoctors® for consecutive years.
