University of Virginia Health System had 189 physicians selected to the 2013 Best Doctors in America® List by Best Doctors, Inc.
Selections to the list are based on physician surveys; physicians cannot pay to be included on the list nor are they paid to provide their input. According to Best Doctors, physicians are asked questions that include, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?”
Based on the initial list from the physician survey, Best Doctors then checks the nominated physicians in several areas, including credentials and clinical activity, to create the final list of honorees. About 5 percent of U.S. doctors earn inclusion on the list, according to Best Doctors.
“I am pleased to see so many of our physicians highlighted by their fellow doctors for providing high-quality patient care,” said Steven T. DeKosky, MD, FACP, vice president and dean of UVA School of Medicine. “Awards such as Best Doctors reflect not only the dedication of our physicians, but the entire team of healthcare providers here at UVA Health System.”
