195 UVA Physicians rank among best doctors in America

The listing of Best Doctors in America ® 2010-2011 by Best Doctors, Inc. names 195 University of Virginia physicians as among the best in the nation.  This number represents the highest ever for UVA – nine more than appeared on the previous list in 2009.

“It’s quite remarkable that our peers continue to recognize more and more of our physicians for the biennial Best Doctors survey,” said Steven T. DeKosky, MD, FACP, Vice President and Dean of the UVA School of Medicine. “We are proud to have such a large number of our physicians recognized by their peers for their skills and achievements.  This is a prestigious honor that speaks not only to our physician’s on-going commitment to outstanding patient care, but also to all those involved in patient care at the UVA Health System.

Best Doctors database includes the names and professional profiles of doctors chosen through a comprehensive peer-review survey of thousands of physicians, who are asked questions such as, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?”  Only about 5 percent of U.S. doctors in more than 40 medical subspecialties are selected for each Best Doctors list, which comes out every two years.

The 195 UVA Health System physicians, listed by their medical specialty, are:
