UK HealthCare Boasts 123 'Best Doctors in America'

Published: Dec 14, 2009

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 14, 2009) — This year’s list of the “Best Doctors in America” includes 123 UK HealthCare physicians. UK HealthCare’s list of Best Doctors has grown from 64 physicians listed in 2005. 

 

“Successful recruitment of stellar medical staff provides the underpinning to our philosophy that no matter what type of health care problems you have, you don’t have to leave Kentucky to get the care you need,” said Dr. Michael Karpf, UK’s executive vice president for health affairs.

 

Improvements in the quality and range of the clinical faculty are the result of a deliberate effort on the part of UK HealthCare.  Part of being a “Top 20” academic medical center is having the depth and breadth of clinical expertise to provide the most advanced, complex medical care.

 

“We are very proud of our outstanding clinical faculty, who are distinguished by their skill and by their dedication to our community,” said Dr. Jay Perman, dean of the UK College of Medicine and vice president for clinical affairs. “It is fitting and appropriate for them to be recognized among the nation's best physicians.”

 

The public can call (859) 257-1000 or 1-800-333-8874 to get a copy of the list of Best Doctors or to make an appointment with a UK physician.

 

Best Doctors surveyed physicians nationwide and asked them: “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?”

 

The following UK physicians were honored in this year’s list of Best Doctors in America:
