Seattle - Leading specialists from around the world were recently surveyed to discover the nation’s “Best Doctors”. The results, found in the current listing of The Best Doctors in America (Copyright 2001 by Best Doctors, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.), determined that 164 physicians at Children’s are considered “Best Doctors” by their peers. The complete list may be found at:
www.seattlechildrens.org/mdstaff/medstaff/best_doctors_2002.pdf.

The survey is the fifth undertaken by Best Doctors, Inc. To compile the current database, tens of thousands of doctors throughout the United States were asked to rate the clinical abilities of other doctors in their areas of specialization.

Only physicians who earned the consensus support of their peers earned the title “Best Doctor”. 30,000 doctors in the U.S., about four percent of all U.S. doctors, are selected as outstanding doctors by Best Doctors, Inc. each year.
