Central Ohio Primary Care Physicians named "Best Doctors in America"

The 2015-16 list of “Best Doctors in America” includes 52 Central Ohio Primary Care Physicians. This widely respected list, created by Best Doctors, Inc., results from exhaustive polling of over 50,000 physicians in the United States. Only five percent of doctors in America earn this prestigious honor, decided by impartial peer review. 

COPC physicians are found in the following subcategories on this year’s list: General Pediatrics, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease

“Best Doctors in America” employs the latest technology as well as peer-to-peer interviews to compile its listing. The physicians listed are those who fellow doctors would choose to care for their own health or the health of a loved one.

Best Doctors has earned a worldwide reputation for reliable, impartial results by remaining independent. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the database, nor are they paid to provide their input. The list is a product of validated peer review, in which doctors who excel in their specialties are chosen.
