The May 2012 issue of AZ Magazine listed the top physicians in the Valley.
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.
First, they create a pool of candidates. Each year Key Professional Media sends out thousands of ballots to doctors asking them to nominate colleagues they know to be exceptional in their specified field. Physicians are asked to consider the following 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.
The results are listed on their website and printed in a special advertising section in the magazine.
We are very proud of our physicians!
We would like to congratulate Drs. Greg Maggass and Farley Yang for being voted as Arizona's Top Docs in the April 2012 Phoenix Magazine issue. To select the physicians, PHOENIX Magazine randomly surveys 5,000 Valley physicians, including M.D.s (medical doctors), D.O.s (osteopathic doctors) and N.D.s/N.M.Ds (naturopathic doctors). The surveys ask the doctors to nominate other doctors who, in their judgment, are the best in their field and related fields. Congratulations!!
