UK HealthCare Physicians Named to Best Doctors in America for 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 21, 2014) – More than 100 UK HealthCare physicians affiliated with UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital, Kentucky Children's Hospital and UK HealthCare Good Samaritan Hospital appear on the Best Doctors in America® list for 2014 – more than any other hospital in Kentucky. Only 5 percent of doctors in America earn this prestigious honor, decided by impartial peer review.

The Best Doctors in America® list, assembled by Best Doctors Inc. and audited and certified by Gallup®, results from exhaustive polling of more than 45,000 physicians in the United States. Doctors in more than  40 specialties and 400 subspecialties of medicine appear on this year’s list. In a confidential review, current physicians on the list answer the question, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?” Best Doctors Inc. evaluates the review results and verifies all additional information to meet detailed inclusion criteria.

The experts who are part of the Best Doctors in America® database provide the most advanced medical expertise and knowledge to patients with serious conditions – often saving lives in the process by finding the right diagnosis and right treatment.
