Got Top Docs? Marin General Hospital Does!

Marin Magazine’s prestigious [415] Top Doctors 2014 includes 248 physicians practicing at Marin General Hospital, covering 45 specialties and subspecialties (including primary care), the largest number yet.
The list was compiled through peer-to-peer polling of more than 4,000 doctors in San Francisco and Marin counties, who were asked to select the physicians they considered the best of the best. Every doctor in the area was both a candidate and a voter (they were not allowed to vote for themselves, nor were they permitted to vote more than once for any given doctor.) Participants could vote for doctors in all specialties.

“We’re very proud of the exceptional quality of the physicians who practice at Marin General Hospital, as evidenced by the opinion of their peers,” says Dr. Joel Sklar, Chief Medical Officer of Marin General Hospital. “This latest survey confirms that there simply is no reason to cross the bridge to find care—the “Top Docs” are right here in our community.”
