LA Magazine 2020 Top Doctors

HOW THE LIST CAME TOGETHER

With great sprawl comes, among other things, a great deal of choice: You happen to live in a region loaded with cutting-edge medical institutions and highly skilled doctors. But finding those doctors in the sea of options can involve a lot of trial and error.

This list of L.A.’s top doctors should help. This is the first time Los Angeles magazine has undertaken such a project, but it’s a staple for city magazines around the country. Given the enormity of the task, we, like most of the other publications, relied on a firm that specializes in the process—in this case Professional Research Services of Troy, Michigan—to conduct a peer-to-peer survey, asking practicing physicians throughout Los Angeles County to identify the doctors they consider to be at the top of their game.

The process isn’t scientific, but it is logical: The idea is to tap into the wisdom of professionals who know medicine and know the people working within it. The names of those who received the most nominations were crosschecked with the California Medical Board’s license profile database and the Department of Consumer A airs to look for any major complaints or infractions, and their individual practices were contacted as well. Not every nominee wound up making it onto the final list, which begins on the next page. You don’t have to be a patient right now to benefit from the survey, but you do need patience: It’s a big list mixed with some fascinating reads that capture moments from the medical frontier—which happens to be right here in L.A.
