In a peer review process that seeks to identify the top doctors in the United States, rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, has been selected as one of the best plastic surgeons in the country by Castle Connolly.
Dallas plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, has been recognized as one of the best doctors in the country by Castle Connolly’s Top Doctor program. The program, which carefully screens and selects physicians through a peer review process, is designed to help consumers find the best healthcare professionals in various medical specialties.
During the nomination process, Castle Connolly contacts more than 50,000 licensed healthcare professionals nationwide to obtain nominations and feedback about the best doctors practicing in the United States today. They are asked to identify and nominate the most outstanding doctors in their medical specialties who they consider to be top doctors in their region, or nationwide. Self nominations are not allowed.
From there, a physician-led team of researchers reviews each nominee and checks the candidate’s background, medical education, board certification status, hospital and educational appointments, and professional recognitions and achievements. The group also reviews malpractice and disciplinary history to further screen the candidates. The final award recipients are selected by Castle Connolly editors together with the research team.
“This award is meaningful in part because it is driven by peer nomination,” says Dr. Rohrich. “The peer review process is an important component of reliable medical information.”
A well-known advocate for patient safety, Dr. Rohrich lectures frequently around the world at surgical conferences and educational meetings promoting safe and effective plastic surgery practices. He serves as chairman for the Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium and also as Editor-in-Chief of the peer reviewed “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery”, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
“I am honored to have been selected as a Top Doctor,” says Dr. Rohrich, who currently serves as a Distinguished Teaching Professor for the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center. “These types of designations can be very valuable tools to help patients find well qualified physicians within a given medical specialty.”
