The Pittsburgh Magazine’s Best Doctors Award is a result of the Best Doctors in America® List.The Best Doctors in America® List includes the most respected specialists and outstanding primary care physicians in the nation. This list is completed every two years using peer-to-peer surveys that prompt physicians with the question, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?” All doctors on the list have been nominated by a current member for consideration. Once deemed a member of the list, recipients join a mere 5% of doctors in the United States honored with the award.
