SAN ANTONIO (April 14, 2011) — More than 150 physicians from UT Medicine San Antonio, the practice of the School of Medicine faculty at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio, are listed in Best Doctors in America® 2011-2012.

The Best Doctors database identifies the most respected medical doctors in more than 40 specialties of medicine. Only about 5 percent of physicians practicing in the U.S. are selected for each Best Doctors list.

The list is created through a peer-to-peer survey of the medical profession. Current Best Doctors are asked questions such as, "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?”

Doctors cannot pay to be listed and each list represents two years.

“This school’s considerable successes in patient care, research and education are a direct result of the hard work and talent of our faculty,” said Francisco González-Scarano, M.D., dean of the School of Medicine, professor of neurology and vice president for medical affairs of the Health Science Center. “This is a long list of honorees but it is still only a fraction of the fine physicians we have on the faculty here.”

The following UT Medicine doctors are on the 2011-2012 list. It is possible a few faculty honorees have been inadvertently omitted.
