Spine Team Texas congratulates its Top Doctors 2017

Nine doctors are among elite group of medical professionals

Spine Team Texas, a comprehensive spine center specializing in the treatment of back and neck pain, is proud to announce nine of its physicians have been named a Top Doctor by Fort Worth Magazine. With more than 2,400 votes cast by local physicians, it is an honor for the Spine Team Texas doctors to be recognized by their peers.

Many of the Spine Team Texas’ physicians have previously been recognized as a Top Doctor, but the number of doctors listed in this year’s publication is unprecedented. “To be named to this list as a physician is a testament to the skills and dedication of our doctors,” said Mark Hood, CEO of Spine Team Texas. “To have nine doctors on the list from our practice is extraordinary. We are honored and proud to be able to deliver a premier patient experience.”

Fort Worth Magazine provides the list of Top Doctors annually as a tool for those in search of a physician. More than 4,500 local physicians are sent a survey to voluntarily rate their peers and name the best doctors in Tarrant County. Medical professionals voted online between June and September of 2016. The final results were submitted to a select panel of physicians for review with a threshold applied. The Top Doctors results are listed in the April issue of the home and lifestyle magazine.
