What is a Texas Super Doctor?

THE SUPER DOCTORS SELECTION PROCESS (from www.superdoctors.com)

In selecting physicians for Super Doctors, Key Professional Media employs a rigorous multi-step process designed to identify physicians who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Super Doctors is a selective yet diverse listing of outstanding doctors, representing consumer-oriented medical specialties.

Survey of Doctors

First, we create a pool of candidates. Each year Key Professional Media invites doctors to nominate colleagues they know to be exceptional in their specified field. Physicians are asked to consider the following question: “If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?” Numerous safeguards are in place to prevent ballot manipulation and doctors may not self-nominate.

Candidate Search

Our research staff also contributes to the pool of candidates by searching medical databases, online sources, and publications for doctors who have attained certain credentials, honors or professional achievements – what we term ‘Star Search Credentials.’ This process also includes physicians in less visible or highly specialized medical treatment areas.

Research

We evaluate candidates on 10 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.

  • Years of experience
  • Hospital appointments
  • Fellowships
  • Professional activities
  • Leadership positions
  • Academic achievements/positions
  • Board certifications
  • Publications, lectures & presentations
  • Honors and awards
  • Other outstanding achievement

Blue Ribbon Panel Review

Nominees are then grouped into specialties. Doctors, in each area, who have the highest scores from the nomination and evaluation steps are invited to serve on a “blue ribbon panel.” Each panelist is asked to review and evaluate a list of nominees from his/her area of focus.

The Final Selection

The last step is to total the points received from nominations, research, and blue ribbon panel review. Only the highest scoring doctors are included on the Super Doctors list. The Super Doctors list is approximately 5% of the physicians within the respective state or region.

Before Publishing

Each candidate is contacted to verify the doctor’s professional information. Physicians are asked to verify they have not been subject to disciplinary or criminal proceedings. The research staff also independently reviews the discipline record of each candidate before publication and verifies that the doctor is active and in good standing.

Congratulations to Drs. Vaughn, Silverberg, Hansard, and Burger!
