UC San Diego Health System “Top Docs” Honored Locally

122 UC San Diego Physicians Named Best Doctors in San Diego Region

More than one hundred physicians from University of California, San Diego Health System were named “Top Docs” in the 2012 San Diego Magazine “Physicians of Exceptional Excellence” annual survey. These physicians represent 35 specialties from internal medicine to oncology, obstetrics, cardiovascular and surgical care.

“As the region’s only academic health system, we offer a wide array of complex specialties to treat the diverse needs of our patients,” said Paul Viviano, CEO, UC San Diego Health System. “The majority of our doctors are national experts who strive to develop compassionate, lifesaving treatments, even cures, based on their unique roles as both clinicians and scientists.”

The “Top Docs” are named each year by physician peers who are members of the San Diego County Medical Society. Members are asked to vote for board-certified physicians practicing in San Diego County to whom they would refer their own patients and family members. This year, 122 physicians were ranked “tops” in 35 specialties. Four physicians within this group rank in more than one area.

“UC San Diego Health System physicians are not only taking care of today’s patients, but also educating tomorrow’s doctors and health care experts,” explained David Brenner, MD, vice chancellor of UC San Diego Health Sciences and dean of UC San Diego School of Medicine.  “To be recognized by our colleagues demonstrates to our patients, and the greater health care community, that our physicians truly deserve to be recommended as the best.”
