Austin, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/19/2016 -- Restora Austin Plastic Surgery Centre is proud to announce that Ashley Gordon, M.D., and Dustin Reid, M.D., are both included in the MSP Communications exclusive list of esteemed physicians. MSP Communications, researcher and publisher of the annual Super Doctors list, employs a rigorous, multi-step process to select physicians for inclusion in their publication that recognizes a diverse pool of medical doctors over various specialties.
What makes the Super Doctors list such a significant achievement is the detailed selection criteria. The physicians are not only vetted for professional accomplishments, but they must also have attained peer recognition during the period of time they've been in practice.
Dr. Gordon's inclusion on the Super Doctors list this year follows her presence on the Rising Star™ Super Doctor list in both 2012 and 2013 and on the Texas Super Doctors list in 2014 and 2015. Rising Star candidates are evaluated over 10 areas including fellowships, professional activities, leadership positions, board certifications, honors and awards and have been fully licensed to practice for approximately 10 years or fewer. While approximately 5 percent of the physicians within Texas are named to Super Doctors, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list. Dr. Gordon also recently received the distinguished Castle-Connelly "Top Doctors" nomination by her peers.
Dr. Reid is making his fourth consecutive appearance on the Super Doctors list this year. He also recently received the distinguished Castle-Connelly "Top Doctors" nomination by his peers. Both surgeons have been nominated as a "Top Doc" in their specialty by Austin Monthly magazine.
Each year MSP Communications invites doctors to nominate colleagues they know to be exceptional in their specified field. Physicians are posed this question: If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose? Numerous safeguards are in place to prevent ballot manipulation and doctors may not self-nominate. Their research staff then searches medical databases, online sources, and publications for doctors who have attained certain credentials, honors or professional achievements.
Nominees are then grouped into specialties and those with the highest scores from the nomination and evaluation steps are invited to serve on a "blue ribbon panel." Each panelist reviews and evaluates a list of nominees from his/her area of focus. Finally points are tallied with only the highest-scoring doctors included on the Super Doctors list. The research staff also independently reviews the discipline record of each candidate before publication and verifies that the doctor is active and in good standing.
Those physicians on the Super Doctors' list can be searched online by the general public by name, location, or area of specialty at SuperDoctors.com. The list was also published in the December 2016 issue of Texas Monthly magazine.
