Texas Tech Physicians Doctors Make "Top Docs" Lists

More than 100 physicians in Amarillo and Lubbock recognized by their peers.

Top Docs BadgesThis year, more than 100 Texas Tech Physicians doctors were recognized by fellow area physicians as being among the best in their field. Thirty-eight were selected from the Amarillo clinics for Amarillo Magazine’s Top Docs list, and 64 were selected from the Lubbock clinics for Lubbock Magazine’s list of the same name.

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 Physicians doctor who was selected for 2020! For more information on each physician or to schedule an appointment, visit the Texas Tech Physicians website.
