Written by Suzanna Cisneros
The Best Doctors in America® List for 2011-2012 has named numerous Texas Tech Physicians of Lubbock. Only 5 percent of doctors in America earn this prestigious honor.
The Best Doctors in America® List, assembled by Best Doctors Inc., results from polling more than 45,000 physicians in the United States. Doctors in more than 400 subspecialties of medicine appear on this year’s list. In a confidential review, current physician listees answer the question, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?” Best Doctors Inc. evaluates the review results, and verifies all additional information to meet detailed inclusion criteria.
Best Doctors has earned a worldwide reputation for reliable, impartial results by remaining totally independent. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the Best Doctors database, nor are they paid to provide their input. The list is a product of validated peer review, in which their peers in the profession select doctors who excel in their specialties.
