83 Temple Physicians Named Best Doctors in America®

Temple Health is once again well represented in the latest Best Doctors in America® List. Eighty-three (83) Temple physicians have been named to the "Best Doctors" list for 2014, which includes physicians that practice at Temple University Hospital, Temple University Hospital-Episcopal Campus, Jeanes Hospital, and Fox Chase Cancer Center. Only five percent of doctors in America earn a spot on the prestigious list, which is assembled by Best Doctors, Inc.® and audited and certified by Gallup®.

Every doctor on the "Best Doctors" list was nominated by fellow physicians and selected for final inclusion on the list through impartial peer review. The doctors on the list are recognized for providing the most advanced medical expertise and knowledge to patients with serious conditions.

"Having 83 of our physicians from more than two dozen specialties named among the very best doctors in the nation is a source of great pride for Temple Health," said Larry R. Kaiser, MD, FACS, President and CEO of Temple University Health System, and Dean of Temple University School of Medicine.
