    Sutter Health Salutes Physicians Named as Top Doctors in Marin and San Francisco

    San Francisco, CA, February 1, 2012 – Almost 250 physicians at California Pacific Medical Center, Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation, and Novato Community Hospital – all part of the Sutter Health network - have been named on the prestigious list of [415] Top Doctors 2012 by Marin Magazine.

    The list results from polling more than 4,000 doctors in San Francisco and Marin counties, asking them to vote for the physician or physicians they considered the best in their field. All the doctors on the list were both candidates and voters in this peer-to-peer poll, and were allowed to cast as many votes as they liked, across all specialties. The only limitations were not being allowed to vote for themselves and only voting for the same doctor once.

    “This is a great testimony to the breadth and depth of talent that we have at our hospitals throughout the West Bay,” says Mike Cohill, president of Sutter Health’s West Bay Region. “This is particularly gratifying because these physicians are being honored by their peers, people who really know what it takes to be a great doctor. It’s great recognition for all these doctors and great news for their patients who can proudly point to the fact that their doctor is among the best around.”

    When the results were tallied, approximately 600 doctors with the highest vote counts were included on the [415] Top Doctors 2012 list. Doctors from CPMC, Sutter Pacific Medical Foundation, and Novato Community Hospital comprise 245 of that 600 and specialize in everything from allergy and immunology to kidney transplant.
