Best Doctors in America 2016

Congratulations to the Washington University physicians that have been placed on the Best Doctors List in America for 2016. Of the 1,267physicians on the list, one out of every three Best Doctors in St. Louis is a Washington University Physician. 

The Best Doctors in America is an online resource developed by Best Doctors, Inc. Best Doctors believes physicians are the most qualified to evaluate the experience and skill sets of other physicians. Physicians are asked "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, who would you choose?” Complete information about the selection process can be found at the Best Doctors web site.
