Austin Vein Specialists is proud to announce vein surgeon Dr. Joel Gotvald has been selected as a featured practitioner in Texas Monthly Magazine’s Texas Super Doctors® 2016 list!
The Texas Super Doctors® 2016 list was be published in the December 2016 issue of Texas Monthly. Super Doctors are “a listing of outstanding physicians from more than 40 medical specialties who have attained a high degree of peer recognition or professional achievement.”
“In selecting physicians for Super Doctors, MSP Communications employs a rigorous multi-step process designed to identify physicians who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Super Doctors is a selective yet diverse listing of outstanding doctors, representing consumer-oriented medical specialties.”
The Super Doctors research staff surveys medical databases, online sources, and publications for doctors who’ve received certain credentials, honors, or professional achievements. Candidates are then evaluated on the following criteria: years of experience, hospital appointments, fellowships, professional activities, leadership positions, academic achievements/positions, board certifications, publications, lectures & presentations, honors and awards, and another outstanding achievement.
Once scores are tallied, nominees are grouped into specialties, and those with the highest rankings are invited to serve on a “blue-ribbon panel” where they evaluate the nominees from their field.
The final points are tallied and the doctors with the highest scores are selected for inclusion in the Super Doctors list, representing about 5% of the physicians within the respective state or region. Read more about the selection process on superdoctors.com
