71 West Penn Allegheny Health System Doctors Named Region’s Best By Pittsburgh Magazine

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Seventy-two physicians from the West Penn Allegheny Health System, representing 32 medical specialties, are recognized in the May 2012 issue of Pittsburgh Magazine for being among the region’s best doctors in their respective fields.

Pittsburgh Magazine‘s annual “Best Doctors” list is compiled by Best Doctors, Inc., a 23-year old company founded by doctors affiliated with Harvard Medical School. To conduct its annual study, Best Doctors contacts physicians in the Pittsburgh region who have been included on a previous “Best Doctors” list and asks them, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?”

Best Doctors then checks physician licensing and certification requirements, and for any disqualifying disciplinary actions. Nominated doctors who withstand the company’s vetting process are added to the list.

The following physicians from West Penn Allegheny were chosen by their peers as best doctors for 2012:
