With a focus on prevention, Premier’s model for success is defined by quality teams delivering the highest standard in health care at the lowest possible cost for its patients. The company’s collaborative culture of committed employees has earned Premier the highly coveted designation of a Level Three Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for all primary care offices. This distinction represents a steadfast dedication to each patient’s overall health and an exceptional standard of care that is difficult to achieve and maintain.

Best Doctors’ team of researchers conducts a biennial poll using the methodology that mimics the informal peer-to-peer process doctors themselves use to identify the right specialists for their patients. Using a polling method and balloting software that Gallup® has audited and certified, they gather the insight and experience of tens of thousands of leading specialists all over the country, while confirming their credentials and specific areas of expertise.

The result is the Best Doctors in America® List, which includes the nation’s most respected specialists and outstanding primary care physicians in the nation. These are the doctors that other doctors recognize as the best in their fields. They cannot pay a fee and are not paid to be listed and cannot nominate or vote for themselves. It is a list which is truly unbiased and respected by the medical profession and patients alike as the source of top quality medical information.
