WASHINGTON — More than 20 of doctors from Howard University Hospital and the Howard University Faculty Practice Plan have been named by their peers as one of outstanding practicing physicians in the Washington-Baltimore-Northern Virginia area. The number accounts for nearly 10 percent of the hospital and practice plan’s staff and reflects the care the hospital and university uses in recruiting and selecting the finest physicians.
The results were published Sunday in the Washington Post. Last spring, Super Doctors®, a listing of top doctors in the Washington, DC/Baltimore area, sent surveys to thousands of doctors in the area asking for nominees in 30 categories. Each nominee was then evaluated by the Super Doctors® research staff using a set of 10 established indicators, including peer recognition and professional achievement.
