See Seattle Met’s Top Doctors 2011

In its August issue, Seattle Met recognizes 160 UW Medicine doctors among the 612 top doctors in the Puget Sound region, encompassing King, Kitsap, and Snohomish counties and parts of Pierce County.

The list covers 66 specialties and represents the top  5 percent of practitioners in their fields as of May 24, 2011.

The magazine survey was conducted in partnership with Avvo, which rates and profiles 90 percent of the doctors in the United States  including all of the doctors in Washington state.  Avvos proprietary methodology rates physicians on a 10-point scale. It relies not only on peer endorsements, but also on such factors as experience, training, disciplinary history, fellowships, hospital privileges, awards and information from certifying and licensing boards.

UW Medicine includes Harborview Medical Center, UW Medical Center, Northwest Hospital & Medical Center, Valley Medical Center, UW Neighborhood Clinics, UW School of Medicine, UW Physicians and Airlift Northwest.

See the current issue of Seattle Met for the full list and details on the selection methods.
