Kaiser Permanente Physicians Named Top Doctors by Washingtonian Magazine

Whether you have a sore throat or sprain or need major surgery, you want a doctor you can trust. This list can help you find a good one. Here are the area’s top 1,900 physicians in 39 specialties, as chosen by their peers.

In an online survey, the region’s physicians nominated their colleagues in 39 specialties. To vote, each physician had to include a current medical-license number registered in either the District, Maryland or Virginia. Doctors could submit just one ballot each and could not vote for themselves.

Many physicians have more than one office so they’ve listed the address and phone number for only the main location. Also included are the special interests as provided by the doctors office. Absent from the roster are emergency-room doctors, radiologists, and anesthesiologists because normally they’re chosen by another doctor - or left to chance, as when you’re rushed to the ER or sent for an x-ray.

We hope you find the list to be a useful resource when looking for medical care and that it helps keep you in good health.
