The Top Doctors 2014 issue hit newsstands this month. The annual guide, now in its second year, features 214 UTHealth faculty members and affiliated physicians who are part of the medical school’s research and residency and fellowship training programs.

“We are proud that our physicians have once again been recognized by their peers for their dedication to the health of their patients,” said Giuseppe Colasurdo, M.D., president of UTHealth, dean of McGovern Medical School and one of Houston’s top pediatric pulmonologists. “Having so many of our clinical providers represented on this outstanding physician list is a testament to our mission to serve with excellence in our rapidly expanding network of UT Physicians clinics and our teaching hospitals, including Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and Harris Health’s Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital.”

To compile the list of the city’s top doctors, Houstonia magazine mailed postcards to more than 15,000 state board-certified physicians in Houston. They were asked to recommend two doctors in any medical specialty by casting votes on the magazine’s secure website. Then the nominations were tallied.
