Moretsky Cassidy Vision Correction is honored to be represented in Phoenix Magazine “Top Doctors” ten times. This annual guide features the Valley’s best physicians selected in a random survey of other Valley doctors and physicians. Like we’ve said for years…Trust the Doctors the Doctors Trust.
Excerpt from Phoenix Magazine:
Who decides who’s a Top Doctor?
Frequently asked questions about how physicans are selected.
Who picks the doctors?
The physicians are selected through a peer-review survey. The theory is that medical professionals are best qualified to judge medical professionals. To select the physicians, PHOENIX magazine randomly surveys 5,000 Valley physicians, including M.D.s (medical doctors), D.O.s (osteopathic doctors), and N.D.s/N.M.D.s (naturopathic doctors). The surveys ask the doctors to nominate peers who, in their judgment, are the best in their field and related fields. Physicians must be board certified to qualify.
Does PHOENIX magazine check out all of the doctors on the list?
Yes. Once the list is compiled, PHOENIX magazine’s fact-checkers verify the doctors’ names, addresses, phone numbers and board certifications. In addition, each name is checked against the state’smedical boards to determine if the doctor is currently under probation or has had his or her license revoked. Those who have are removed from the list. To find out more about individual doctors, visit azmd.gov for M.D.s and D.O.s; and podiatry.state,az.us for podiatrists.
Why not ask patients to rate the best doctors?
Every year we get several calls asking this question, and the simple answer is that patients generally lack the medical expertise to judge a doctor’s qualifications. Should we ever do a ranking based solely on bedside manner, querying patients might be an option.
