UAMS Physicians Among Best Doctors in America

At UAMS, we are honored that more than half of the Best Doctors in Arkansas are UAMS College of Medicine physicians who practice at the UAMS Medical Center, Children’s Hospital and the Central Arkansas Veteran’s Healthcare System.

This list is compiled by Best Doctors Inc. and published by the monthly magazine Arkansas Times.

Best Doctors’ team of researchers conducts a biennial poll using the methodology that mimics the informal peer-to-peer process doctors themselves use to identify the right specialists for their patients.

Using a proprietary polling method and balloting software, Best Doctors gathers the insight and experience of tens of thousands of leading specialists all over the country, while confirming their credentials and specific areas of expertise. themselves use to identify the right specialists for their patients.

The result is the Best Doctors in America List, which includes the nation’s most respected specialists and outstanding primary care physicians in the nation. These are the doctors that other doctors recognize as the best in their fields. They cannot pay a fee and are not paid to be listed and cannot nominate or vote for themselves. It is a list which is truly unbiased and respected by the medical profession and patients
alike as the source of top quality medical information.”
