We contacted more than 4,600 nurses in the Roanoke Valley to select the best doctors in 49 medical specialties. Thank you to all who voted and congratulations to the Top Docs of 2015.
For our biennial polling to determine the best doctors of the Roanoke Valley, nurses in Roanoke-area zip codes shared their views on physicians in 49 specialties. Those nurses, whose names and address were provided by the Virginia Board of Health Professionals, anonymously filled out a ballot (listing one doctor per category) during March and early April.
In some practice areas where fewer than three doctors are listed, there were not sufficient numbers of votes beyond those listed. These results are meant as a guideline and as part of a search for a physician; there are many reasons that many excellent doctors do not appear here, including lack of affiliation to a hospital, recent arrival to the area, the tendency to recommend those who are known and practice in sub-specialties not on the ballot.
These results do not suggest that you should change from a doctor with whom you have a positive relationship. When choosing your physician, use all resources available, including recommendations of family and friends.
