Most Top Doctors Named by U.S. News & World Report
UC San Diego Health System has been recognized as having 83 Top Doctors in more than 30 specialties by U.S. News & World Report. Based on a peer nomination process, UC San Diego Health System’s results represent the majority of San Diego physicians recognized by their colleagues locally and nationally as being a top doctor and worthy referral.
“We are proud to be home to the most Top Doctors in San Diego by U.S. News & World Report,” said Tom Jackiewicz, chief executive officer of UC San Diego Health System. “Patients and families looking for a specialist can be confident that our physicians and surgeons are the best in their field and connected to the only academic health system in the San Diego region.”
U.S. News & World Report’s Top Doctors was created in collaboration with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., publisher of America’s Top Doctors and other consumer health guides. It draws from Castle Connolly’s database of Top Doctors, all recommended for their clinical skills by other doctors and individually vetted by a physician-led research team. Consumers can search for a Top Doctor by location, hospital affiliation, and a full range of specialties and subspecialties.
