Four faculty members within the Department of Otorhinolarygnology—Head and Neck Surgery have been named among the 2013 Texas Super Doctors® Rising Stars. They are Ronda Alexander, MD; Ron Karni, MD; Amber U. Luong, MD, PhD; and Etan Weinstock, MD, FACS.
Texas Super Doctors are nominated by physicians as those they would choose in seeking medical care. Only 2.5 percent of active Texas physicians are named to the Rising Stars list, which includes doctors who have been practicing for 10 years or less. Physicians are grouped into 41 specialties and those who acquire the highest total points from surveys, research and blue-ribbon panel reviews are selected for inclusion. All four physicians are assistant professors at McGovern Medical School.
