2/12/2014

A total of 257 Beaumont Health System physicians appear on the Best Doctors in America® List for 2014, including doctors from all three Beaumont hospitals.

Only 5 percent of doctors in America earn this honor, decided by impartial peer review.

“We are very proud of our high-quality physicians who practice in the Beaumont Health System,” says David Wood, M.D., Beaumont executive vice president and chief medical officer. “Recognition by their peers as Best Doctors in America demonstrates the medical expertise of these Beaumont physicians and assures our community that they can rely on Beaumont for the highest quality care.”

The Best Doctors in America® List, assembled by Best Doctors Inc., is drawn from polling more than 45,000 physicians in the United States. Doctors from more than 40 specialties and 400 subspecialties appear on this year’s list. In a confidential review, physicians currently on the list answered the question, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?”

Best Doctors evaluates the results and verifies all additional information to meet detailed inclusion criteria. The list is certified by Gallup. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the Best Doctors in America® List, nor are they paid to provide input.
