From Tucson Lifestyle

Tucson Lifestyle Best DoctorsBest Doctors® has been compiling a database of top doctors for more than 20 years. We're pleased to reproduce their list of the Best Doctors in Tucson, and to profile some of the physicians on the list.

Best Doctors commissions an exhaustive, biennial peer review survey of the medical profession that contacts more than 45,000 doctors who were identified in previous research as the "best" in their specialties and asks the following question: "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?" Each doctor surveyed has the opportunity to comment confidentially on other physicians listed in his or her specialty, and to make additional nominations. All doctors in the Best Doctors database are checked for licensing and certification requirements, clinical activity and for any disqualifying disciplinary actions. Best Doctors employs a combination of high-technology methods and confidential correspondence to encourage more complete and candid responses.

Best Doctors never takes compensation of any kind from doctors or hospitals in return for listing doctors in its database, nor does Best Doctors pay doctors to participate in its survey process. No list could ever include every outstanding local physician, and were certain that some of you may have favorite doctors who are not mentioned here. Nonetheless, we believe you'll find what follows to be interesting reading and an invaluable reference for you and your family.

These lists are excerpted from The Best Doctors in America® 2011-2012 database, which includes over 45,000 doctors in more than 40 medical specialties. Biennial research is currently in progress to determine selections for the 2013-2014 Best Doctors List. The Best Doctors in America® database is compiled and maintained by Best Doctors, Inc.
