UC Irvine physicians on new “Top Doctors” list
July 26, 2011
More than 80 doctors affiliated with UC Irvine Health are included in the U.S. News “Top Doctors” database. Last week, the U.S. News & World Report included UC Irvine Medical Center on its America’s Best Hospital list for the 11th consecutive year and recognized the university’s programs in urology, gynecology, cancer and nephrology as among the best in the country.
The majority of the physicians listed are on UC Irvine’s faculty, while others are volunteer faculty or are on staff at affiliated hospitals.
U.S. News 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.
The searchable directory is available at www.usnews.com/top-doctors and lists nearly 30,000 peer-nominated physicians across the country.
In addition to the U.S. News recognition, more than 90 UC Irvine physicians are listed among America’s Best Doctors.
