Four of Reproductive Partners’ doctors were named to the list of Southern California Super Doctors-2013 published in the January 2013 issue of Los Angeles Magazine. Drs. David Meldrum, Gregory Rosen, Arthur Wisot and Bill Yee represent the Beverly Hills/LA, Redondo Beach and Westminster offices.
Super Doctors employs a rigorous multi-step process designed to identify physicians who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Super Doctors is a selective yet diverse listing of outstanding doctors, representing consumer-oriented medical specialties.
They create a pool of candidates by inviting doctors to nominate colleagues they know to be exceptional in their specified field. Physicians are asked to consider the following question: “If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?” Numerous safeguards are in place to prevent ballot manipulation and doctors may not self-nominate.
Their research staff also contributes to the pool of candidates by searching medical databases, online sources, and publications for doctors who have attained certain credentials, honors or professional achievements. This process also includes physicians in less visible or highly specialized medical treatment areas.
They evaluate candidates on 10 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.
Years of experience
Publications, lectures & presentations
Honors and awards
Other outstanding achievement
Nominees are then grouped into specialties. Doctors, in each area, who have the highest scores from the nomination and evaluation steps are invited to serve on a “blue ribbon panel.” Each panelist is asked to review and evaluate a list of nominees from his/her area of focus.
The last step is to total the points received from nominations, research, and blue ribbon panel review. Only the highest-scoring doctors are included on the Super Doctors list. The Super Doctors list is approximately 5% of the physicians within their respective state or region.
Before publishing each candidate is contacted to verify the doctor’s professional information. Physicians are asked to verify they have not been subject to disciplinary or criminal proceedings. The research staff also independently reviews the discipline record of each candidate before publication and verifies that the doctor is active and in good standing.
Drs. Rosen, Meldrum, Wisot and Yee were included in the category of Reproductive Endocrinology.
