More than 100 Texas Tech Physician Doctors Make “Top Docs” List

Top Docs

This year, more than 100 Texas Tech Physicians doctors were recognized by fellow area physicians as the best in their field. Twenty-eight Texas Tech Physicians doctors from the Amarillo clinics were selected for Amarillo Magazine’s “Top Docs” and seventy-three Texas Tech Physicians from the Lubbock clinics were selected for Lubbock Magazine’s “Top Docs.”
This recognition honors physicians for exceptional efforts in their practices. Area physicians were asked to consider “If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?” Physicians from many departments were selected based on peer evaluation.
Congratulations to each Texas Tech Physician doctor who was selected for 2019! For more information on each physician or to schedule an appointment, please visit the Texas Tech Physicians website.
