The University of Virginia Medical Center credits its role as a teaching and research hospital for attracting some of the nation's top doctors to Charlottesville.
This year, 181 UVA Health System physicians made the list of best doctors in America.
Best Doctors, Inc. surveyed more than 45,000 physicians who selected the doctors they'd recommend to their loved ones.
“Today, there are lots of billboards that talk about excellence. But the way we measure excellence here is clinical outcomes - how do our patients do when they receive care at UVA? And part of the reason they do so well are the 181 doctors that are recognized,” said Dr. Richard Shannon, vice president for health affairs at UVA Medical Center.
Family medicine doctors, neurologists, and surgeons all make the list for UVA. The health system says it's always working to recruit the best doctors so more physicians make the list each year.
