Karmanos Cancer Center doctors named to prestigious Best Doctors in America® List

More than 90 physicians affiliated with the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Center have been named to the Best Doctors in America ® List for 2013. The list is assembled by Best Doctors, Inc., founded in 1989 by Harvard Medical School physicians, and is audited and certified by Gallup®, with results taken from an exhaustive polling of more than 45,000 physicians in the United States.

Only five percent of doctors in America earn this prestigious honor. The list is a product of a validated peer review in which doctors who excel in their specialties are selected by their professional peers. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the Best Doctors database, nor are they paid to provide their input.

In a confidential review, current physician listees answer the question, “If you or a loved one need a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?” Best Doctors evaluates the review results and verifies all additional information to meet detailed inclusion criteria.

The experts who are part of the Best Doctors in America ® database provide the most advised medical expertise and knowledge to patients with serious conditions, often saving lives in the process. The list is accessed by Best Doctors’ 30 million members worldwide.

“We are extremely pleased that so many of our cancer experts have been included on this list,” said Gerold Bepler, M.D., Ph.D., president and CEO of Karmanos. “It’s another testimony to the superior job that our oncologists and other medical staff do to provide our patients with the very best in treatments and overall care during their cancer journey. Our doctors are the best at what they do and their inclusion on this list confirms that.”
