More Than 100 Good Sam Physicians Are ‘Top Docs’


Congratulations to the 113 physicians on Good Samaritan’s medical staff who were named to the 2023 list of Top Docs, published by 5280 magazine!

Each year, the magazine asks metro-area physicians to vote for the colleagues they feel deliver the highest-quality care in their specialty – the ones they would choose to care for themselves or a loved one. Physicians with the most votes appear on the annual list.
