In July of this year, Texas Monthly, an Austin publication that chronicles contemporary life among the elite in Texas, continued its tradition of identifying and honoring the best of the best in the medical field. Nine Austin Regional Clinic physicians representing six specialties were selected and honored with the title of Texas Super Doctor. These nine super stars because of their experience and expertise and the high quality of care they provide their patients have earned the respect and recognition of their peers for the year 2015.
40,000 medical professionals in Texas participate in the selection of the state’s top doctors. Each doctor nominates one or more doctors other than himself by answering one telling and very astute question: “If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?” Selected by Key Professional Media, Inc. and the publishers of Texas Monthly, the selection of the top doctors is also based on an evaluative review of the nominated doctors’ years of experience, board certification, hospital appointments, fellowships, professional activities, academic achievements and positions, publications, and honors and awards.
One winner of this year’s coveted award is Dr. Jennifer Walden. Dr. Walden, a board certified plastic surgeon, is a local girl who did good.
