Twenty-two Austin Regional Clinic (ARC) physicians, representing eight specialties, have been named Texas Super Doctors® 2021 by Texas Monthly magazine.
Super Doctors®, a selective listing of outstanding doctors from more than 40 medical specialties, identifies top doctors as selected by their peers through an extremely rigorous nomination process and the independent research of MSP Communications. The 2021 list is published in the December, 2021 edition of Texas Monthly.
What makes a doctor "super" in the eyes of their peers? MSP Communications asked more than 40,000 medical professionals in Texas to nominate one or more doctor based on one question: "If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?"
"We are very proud that 22 members of our medical group are receiving this honor, especially after another challenging year, and are recognized for their excellent, high-quality care," said Dr. Anas Daghestani, CEO of Austin Regional Clinic. "Recognition by their peers is a high honor, and we appreciate the outstanding patient care they and their colleagues provide every day. Congratulations to them all!"
Approximately 5% of all active Texas physicians are selected to the Texas Super Doctors list.
