REDLANDS, CA – Twenty seven Redlands Community Hospital physicians and surgeons have been named as some of the nation’s Top Doctors, according to a new report issued this week by U.S. News & World Report, the nation’s leading guide to top hospitals and physicians. Last year, 20 physicians on staff at the hospital were named.
U.S. News joined with Castle Connolly Medical, Ltd., publishers of America’s Top Doctors and other guides, to develop a comprehensive list of physicians and surgeons to help consumers make better health care decisions.
The goal of U.S. News Top Doctors is to help guide consumers to top area specialists and primary care physicians who can best address their specific medical needs. This new project differs from U.S. News rankings of Best Hospitals. No physician is ranked in this new survey.
The list of Top Doctors was comprised from extensive research compiled by Castle Connolly, which has worked for two decades in identifying the nation’s leading physicians. The criteria for the Top Doctor resource was based on nominations submitted by other doctors and reviewed by Castle Connolly’s physician-led research team.
No physician can nominate themselves to the list nor can they pay to have a listing.
Redlands Community Hospital physicians named to the Top Doctors List includes those in orthopedic surgery, general surgery, OB/GYN, internal medicine, psychiatry, radiology, pathology, urology, pulmonology, ear, nose and throat (ENT), pediatric medicine, cardiology, oncology, dermatology and rheumatology.
The physicians included on the list include: Dr. Teresa Avants, Obstetrician/
Dr. Enrique Gil, Pulmonologist;
