Phoenix, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/10/2014 -- PHOENIX magazine today announced that the latest installment of its annual issue listing top area doctors has hit newsstands. This eagerly awaited issue recognizes the Valley's most respected doctors in over 50 specialties, comprising over 500 of the best physicians in the Phoenix metro area. Drawing upon area physicians themselves for its assessments, Top Docs is the defining healthcare publication in Arizona.
"Phoenix area residents have long since come to trust and rely on our Medical Directory," editor Craig Outhier stated, "and this annual issue of our magazine serves as the perfect supplement to that comprehensive listing of doctors." With a large and growing population of retirees and more mature people in the area, health care is an issue of especially great concern in the Valley. Many residents have historically found it difficult to select the best providers, especially when under time pressure due to the need for immediate treatment.
PHOENIX magazine's annual ranking of doctors, as well as its year-round Medical Directory, are therefore important tools in the decision-making processes of many in the metropolitan area.
Founded over forty years ago, PHOENIX Magazine covers a wide range of issues of interest to locals in the Salt River Valley. It has chronicled the nation-leading growth of the cities and towns in the Valley over the course of that tenure, always providing an informational mixture consisting of both breaking news and coverage of subjects of perennial interest. In recent months, it has addressed the increase of certain kinds of drug abuse among area teenagers, as well as delivered a list of the best places to visit in Phoenix Arizona.
"The surest way to ensure that our loved ones receive top-notch health care is to be informed about the options," Outhier continued, "and our annual list of the top doctors in the Valley is a good way to start becoming so." This annual listing of the top-performing doctors in the area is generally one of the best-selling issues of the magazine, along with its rankings of the best restaurants in Phoenix, with even larger-than-usual initial print runs often becoming hard to find before long. Subscribers to the magazine enjoy earlier access to this resource than do those who depend on finding it on newsstands, as well as lower prices.
