Texas Monthly’s SUPER DOCTORS: Rising Stars 2014 listing includes 10 Austin Regional Clinic physicians

June 26, 2014 - Ten Austin Regional Clinic physicians representing seven specialties are featured in the July, 2014 issue of Texas Monthly in its list of Texas Super Doctors: Rising Stars Edition 2014. The publishers of Texas Monthly and Key Professional Media, Inc., released this list of Texas Rising Stars, stating that they are “the physicians who are trusted and sought out by colleagues for medical care.” The doctors were selected by their peers and verified by the Key Professional Media research staff .

“All of our doctors provide the comprehensive, coordinated, high-quality care for which ARC is known and respected,” said Dr. Norman. H. Chenven, CEO and Founder of Austin Regional Clinic. “We are proud of our 10 ‘rising stars’ who are receiving this special, well-earned recognition from their peers. They and their colleagues provide care that benefits our patients and saves healthcare dollars in the long run.”

Key Professional Media, Inc. asked more than 40,000 medical professionals in Texas to nominate one or more doctors, other than themselves, from 42 specified medical specialties based on one question: “If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?” The research team identified newer Texas doctors who have been fully-licensed approximately 10 years or less. The “Rising Stars” distinction is in its third year , specifically recognizing younger physicians, for Texas Super Doctors, which publishes its main list in December. Only 2.5% of all active Texas physicians are selected to the Texas Rising Stars list.
