 Best Doctors

More than 90 UC Irvine Healthcare physicians have earned the distinction of being named Best Doctors in America® in the latest peer-reviewed list compiled by Best Doctors, Inc.

The independent organization asked more than 50,000 physicians across the nation to identify the most skilled among their peers in more than 400 medical subspecialties. The comprehensive survey began with the question, "Who would you choose to treat a loved one’s complex medical condition?"

The anonymous and confidential poll information was put through rigorous qualitative and quantitative analysis by Best Doctors. Physicians named “Best Doctors in America®” represent the top 5 percent of their peers nationwide.
