UTMC Sweeps 2005 Top Docs List

Friday, April 15, 2005

By Wendi Hope Bishop, Writer / Editor of eBusiness. 

Cardiologists. Oncologists. Neurologists. Surgeons. The Knoxville, Tenn., area is home to many incredible doctors that deserve recognition for the outstanding job that they perform. Each year, CityView, a magazine with content focusing on the Knoxville region, releases its list of the year’s “top docs” in the Knoxille medical community. The March issue reveals the winners in the article “2005 Top Doctors.”

The list is founded on results from an opinion survey based on professional respect from the acknowledged person’s peers. The magazine surveyed licensed physicians and asked them to “list the physicians to whom they would most likely refer a member of their own family.”

This year, a majority of the honored doctors on the list are part of UT Medical Center. The medical center has a rich history in the community of providing patient-centered care and remaining at the forefront of research and technology. UT Medical Center attributes its well-respected standing within the community to the exceptional people that dedicate themselves to patient care excellence. The following list is the UT Medical Center doctors that are Top Docs in Knoxville.
