Penn Heart and Vascular's "Top Docs" in 2014


Each year Philadelphia Magazine compiles a list of the “Top Doctors” in the region. These “Top Docs” are chosen after a rigorous screening process on both the regional and national level by Castle-Connolly’s team of physician led researchers. Licensed physicians throughout the country are able to participate in an online nomination process where they can nominate peers in any medical specialty as being exemplary practitioners and the best in their region or the best in the nation.
This year, Penn Medicine congratulated 175 physicians with this prestigious recognition.
