Nearly 70 doctors with UofL Physicians named 2014 “Best Doctors in America”

Sixty-eight doctors with University of Louisville Physicians have made the highly regarded “Best Doctors in America” list for 2014. Only 5 percent of doctors in the U.S. earn the honor, a product of impartial, validated peer review in which doctors who excel in their specialties are selected by their peers.

UofL Physicians doctors on the list include such notable names as Dr. Toni Ganzel, an otolaryngologist and dean of the University of Louisville School of Medicine; Dr. Kelly McMasters, a surgical oncologist and chair of the Department of Surgery; Dr. Jesse Roman, a pulmonologist and chair of the Department of Medicine; and Dr. Henry Kaplan, an ophthalmologist and chair of the Department of Ophthalmology.

“It’s an honor for me to be named to this list,” said Dr. Kaplan, who has appeared on the list 25 times. “It’s considered the gold standard in physician ratings, and the fact that so many doctors with UofL Physicians are on it shows the quality and strength of the team that we have here. Our patients can feel confident they are getting the very best in care.”

The Best Doctors in America list, assembled by Best Doctors Inc., is the result of exhaustive polling of over 45,000

physicians in the U.S. In a confidential review, current physician listees answer the question, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?”

Best Doctors has earned a worldwide reputation for reliable, impartial results. The peer review determines the physicians included – doctors cannot buy listings, nor are they paid to provide their input. Only those who earn the consensus support of their peers as well as meet additional, detailed qualification criteria are included.

Gallup has audited and certified Best Doctors Inc.’s database of physicians and its companion Best Doctors in America List as using the highest industry standards in survey methodology and processes. The experts who are part of the Best Doctors in America database provide the most advanced medical expertise and knowledge to patients with serious conditions.

Doctors in over 40 specialties and 400 subspecialties of medicine appear on this year’s list.
