Good news for the new year.
Five doctors at RPMG in Los Angeles have been named Super Doctors (Southern California’s Top Doctors) as reported in the January 2014 edition of Los Angeles Magazine. Drs. Bill Yee, David Meldrum, Andy Huang, Arthur Wisot and Gregory Rosen were honored in the Reproductive Endocrinology category.
In selecting physicians for Super Doctors, Key Professional Media 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.
First, they create a pool of candidates. Each year Key Professional Media invites 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 – ‘Star Search Credentials.’ 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 the respective state or region.
