Sixty five Evergreen physicians make “Top Docs 2009” list

Evergreen Hospital Medical Center, serving the Kirkland, Redmond and Bothell areas, congratulates its 65 physicians who were named “Top Docs” in the July 2009 issue of Seattle magazine.

The magazine’s annual Top Doctors list is compiled from a survey of more than 10,000 Puget Sound area physicians and complementary health care providers. The survey asks the physicians and health care providers who they would recommend for their loved ones in 109 specialty areas.

“We’re extremely proud of all the physicians who practice at Evergreen and are pleased that their health care peers gave so many of them such high marks in the survey,” said Steve Brown, CEO of Evergreen Healthcare. “Our doctors set the benchmark for our patient and family-centered philosophy. They use the latest medical technologies while providing personalized care and treatments.”
