Physicians affiliated with hospitals of the LSU Health Care Services Division appear on the Best Doctors in America® List for 2013. Only five percent of doctors in America earn this prestigious honor, decided by impartial peer review.

These LSU doctors are at the Earl K. Long Medical Center in Baton Rouge, Interim LSU Public Hospital in New Orleans, Leonard J. Chabert Medical Center in Houma, University Medical Center in Lafayette and W. O. Moss Regional Medical Center in Lake Charles.

Best Doctors has earned a sterling, worldwide reputation for reliable, impartial results by remaining totally independent. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the Best Doctors database, nor are they paid to provide their input. The List is a product of validated peer review, in which doctors who excel in their specialties are selected by their peers in the profession.

In bringing together the best medical minds in the world, Best Doctors works with expert physicians from its Best Doctors in America® List to help its 30 million members worldwide get the right diagnosis and right treatment.

The highly regarded Best Doctors in America List, assembled by Best Doctors, Inc., results from exhaustive polling of over 47,000 physicians in the United States. Doctors in 45 specialties and over 400 subspecialties of medicine appear on this year’s List. In a confidential review, current physician listees answer the question, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?” Best Doctors, Inc., evaluates the review results and verifies all additional information to meet detailed inclusion criteria.
