It is an honor for me, as president of the San Diego County Medical Society (SDCMS), to present this year’s TOP DOCTOR award recipients in our region!

For over a decade, SDCMS has worked collaboratively with San Diego Magazine to recognize physicians who are held in the highest regard by their peers. Although measures of quality in health care are complex and often difficult to encapsulate, our team is delighted to have identified physicians in a broad spectrum of 74 specialties.

With votes and nominations open to all board-certified physicians in San Diego, selected nominees represent the best of the best, medical practitioners to whom our doctors would refer their patients and family. In a synchronized effort, SDCMS confirmed every individual nominee’s Medical Board of California licensing, Specialty Board Certification, and current practicing status. Through this exhaustive process, 699 physicians are being honored this year. Many of them have also been recognized for multiple, consecutive years since we began publishing this list. (These physicians are marked with an asterisk, with an additional asterisk for every year that they have been on the list.)

A big “thank you” to all our participating physicians who took the time to complete and screen peer nomination forms. And congratulations to all our Top Docs!

SDCMS looks forward to future nominations, as we continue to help our patients thrive in a vision of “Physicians United for a Healthy San Diego.”

We appreciate San Diego Magazine and all of our local physicians for their involvement and support.

Lastly, call us to see if a doctor is right for you.

President 2015-2016
