MemorialCare Long Beach Medical Center announced that more than 70 of its physicians have been recognized among the best in their fields by the 2019 Southern California Super Doctors report.
The 2019 Southern California Super Doctors report recognizes the top five percent of active doctors in Los Angeles and Orange counties with two lists: Super Doctors 2019 and Rising Stars. The selection process relies on 10 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, surveying physicians in Southern California and ensuring the physicians named are the most respected and talented in their fields.
The Super Doctors peer review selection process asks doctors to nominate fellow physicians by answering the question, “If you needed medical care, which doctor would you choose?” In addition, candidates were evaluated based on professional achievement, as well as the Super Doctors’ ‘blue ribbon panel review’ process, where physicians in more than 30 specialties evaluate the list of nominees.
“The peer review process of Super Doctors shows that our physicians have respect among their peers and are committed to providing their patients the highest quality of care,” Adrian Ramos M.D., chief medical officer, Long Beach Medical Center. “We are proud of the care that our medical staff provides to this community and are humbled by the recognition.”
Long Beach Medical Center physicians were recognized in areas including gynecology and gynecologic oncology, cardiology and thoracic surgery, urology, hematology and oncology, sleep medicine, dermatology, neurology and neurological surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, ophthalmology, gastroenterology, radiology, physical rehabilitation, plastic surgery, orthopedic surgery, reproductive endocrinology, and more.
