Congratulations to five UT Health Austin physicians who were among those selected as Austin’s Top Doctors in the 2019 January Issue of Austin Monthly magazine.
How are doctors selected for Austin’s Top Doctors?
Austin Monthly’s Top Doctors are selected by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. a healthcare research and information company to help guide consumers to America’s top doctors and top hospitals. The process begins when a physician is nominated by their peers at www.castleconnolly.com/nominations. Physician-led research teams follow a rigorous process to select top doctors at regional and national level. Final selections are made after careful screening of the doctor’s educational and professional experience. Physicians selected for inclusion in Austin Monthly’s Top Doctors may also appear online at castleconnolly.com, or in conjunction with other Castle Connolly Top Doctors databases online or in print.
