LA BioMed's investigators named Southern California Super Doctors

December 30, 2010

A select 40 physician-researchers at Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (LA BioMed) were named 2011 Southern California Super Doctors in the January issue of Los Angeles Magazine.

The physicians were chosen for this honor through a peer-review selection process, which ensures only the top 5% of the region's physicians will be named Southern California Super Doctors. The Super Doctors are widely recognized as leaders within their fields of practice and have a record of professional excellence.

"LA BioMed is proud of all of its investigators, and we congratulate our physician-researchers on this well-deserved honor for their distinguished careers and vital contributions to improving healthcare," said LA BioMed President and CEO David I. Meyer, PhD. "LA BioMed's Super Doctors are leaders in serving the underserved through the outstanding care they provide their patients and the ground-breaking research they conduct. LA BioMed is indeed privileged to have such dedicated physicians advancing the pace of discovery and translating those discoveries into treatments and therapies to help patients today and in the future."

To choose the Southern California Super Doctors, Key Professional Media, Inc., an independent firm, sends thousands of ballots to California physicians. Those ballots ask: "If you needed medical care, which doctor would you choose?" Several safeguards prevent against doctors nominating themselves and ballot manipulation. An expert Blue Ribbon Panel groups the nominees into medical practice areas and assigns point totals based on individual reviews. Each doctor's professional information is verified to ensure it is accurate and up-to-date.

Among the LA BioMed physician-researchers named Southern California Super Doctors are specialists in endocrinology, cardiology, gastroenterology, neurology, internal medicine, nephrology, oncology, obstetrics/gynecology, ophthalmology, surgery, pediatrics, psychiatry, pulmonary medicine, immunology and urology.
