21 Howard Physicians Named Super Doctors

WASHINGTON (October 23, 2013) – Twenty one doctors from Howard University Hospital and the Howard University Practice Plan have been named by their peers as outstanding practicing physicians in the Washington-Baltimore-Northern Virginia area.

This number accounts for nearly 10 percent of the university, hospital and practice plan's staff, and reflects the care the hospital and university use in recruiting and selecting the finest physicians. The results were published Sunday in The Washington Post.

"We are delighted to join The Washington Post in recognizing and congratulating these extraordinary individual physicians," said Jeanette Gibbs, associate vice president for administration and operations for Howard University Health Sciences. "Their service to our patients attests to the high level of training and professional competence at Howard University Health Sciences. They are truly making a difference in the community."

Each year, the Super Doctors research staff undertakes a rigorous, multi-phase selection process. The review team sent surveys to thousands of doctors in the area asking for nominees in 30 categories. Each nominee was then evaluated by the Super Doctors team using a set of 10 established indicators, including peer recognition and professional achievement.

After the extensive nomination and research process, conducted by Key Professional Media, Inc., the results were published in Washington, DC-Baltimore-Northern Virginia Super Doctors 2013, a special advertising section in the Oct. 27, 2013, issue of The Washington Post Magazine.

Since 2005, Key Professional Media, Inc., has published Super Doctors lists across the country in newspapers, inserts and magazine special sections. Honorees are also found online at superdoctors.com, where information about selected doctors can be searched by name, practice area and location.

Congratulations to all of the Howard University physicians voted to Super Doctors®.
