69 UCNI Specialists on 2012 ‘Best Doctors’ Lists

CINCINNATI–Jan. 5, 2012–Sixty-nine specialists affiliated with the University of Cincinnati Neuroscience Institute (UCNI), one of four specialized institutes within UC Health, are included on one or both of the latest regional and national lists of leading physicians.

In December, Cincy magazine published the 2011-2012 list of area physicians named by Best Doctors in America®, a national database that includes more than 40,000 physicians in more than 40 specialties.

Cincinnati Magazine, in its January 2012 edition, published its 2012 listing of Top Doctors who practice in the eight counties that make up the Greater Cincinnati region (Hamilton, Warren, Butler and Clermont in Ohio; Boone, Campbell, and Kenton in Kentucky; and Dearborn in Indiana). The list included 667 physicians in 43 specialties.

UCNI leaders congratulated those who were named “top doctors” while praising the dedication and superior abilities of all physicians associated with the Institute. “We recruit only the best, brightest and most innovative clinicians, which means all are among the very best in America,” said John M. Tew, MD, Clinical Director of UCNI. “In addition, because UCNI doctors share a commitment to collaboration and evidence-based medicine, they are not only aware of the latest research and technologies, they are more often than not helping to create them.”

“The UCNI team of physicians, nurses, therapists and technicians strive to deliver the very best care for our patients, day in and day out,” said Joseph Broderick, MD, UCNI’s Research Director. “While the ‘Best Doctor’ designation is one marker of our excellent physicians, the appreciation and recognition from our patients in the office and at the bedside is what we value most.”

The following UCNI physicians were named to the national¹ and regional² lists. For a complete list of individual physician affiliations and office locations, please visit our list of UCNI physicians >>

The Best Doctors® database of physicians is based on a peer review drawn from surveys of tens of thousands of leading specialists worldwide. The specialists were asked whom they would send a loved one to for treatment in their specialty. For more information, visit www.bestdoctors.com. Best Doctors in America® is a registered trademark of Best Doctors, Inc. in the United States and other countries.

Cincinnati Magazine developed its Top Doctors list by sending surveys to more than 5,000 area physicians with current medical licenses and asking them whom they would turn to if they, a family member, or friend needed medical care. Doctors who received at least five votes from their peers were included on the list. Cincinnati Magazine did not list doctors who practice hospital medicine, such as hospitalists and neurointensivists.

Earlier in 2011, 20 UCNI physicians were named to the first U.S. News Top Doctors directory, produced by U.S. News & World Report.
