Top Doctors Survey

Survey Logo

 

 

Welcome to Houstonia magazine’s third annual Top Doctors survey. Last year’s Top Doctors issue was enormously popular with readers, who have found it a very valuable resource to consult when seeking a physician for themselves or someone they love. Now it’s time to compile the 2015 list, and Houston’s best-selling magazine—at last count we had over 454,000 readers—is again seeking your help.

For this year’s survey, we are once more seeking top-doctor nominations from medical professionals throughout our area, and we’re asking all of them one question: If you or a loved one needed medical care, who’s the doctor you would call?

Any physician or nurse practitioner in our eight-county region with a valid Texas state medical license may participate in our survey, nominating one or more Houston-area doctors. For your convenience, our database contains a complete, updated list of the more than 14,000 physicians in Harris, Montgomery, Waller, Fort Bend, Brazoria, Galveston, Chambers, and Liberty counties. From your nominations will come Houstonia’s list of Top Doctors in 66 medical specialties.

So what do you say? If you or a loved one needed medical care, who would you call? Tell us by scrolling down and clicking the “Continue” button at the bottom of the page, and ensure that your opinion is heard. All nominations must be received by Friday, May 1 and will be kept anonymous and unattributed, used only as data to determine our Top Doctors list, which will be published in the August Houstonia. That deadline, again, is Friday, May 1.

For further information on Houstonia and its Top Doctors methodology, simply click here.

2014 CADAH President’s letter – Susan H. Yang, DDS

Susan H. Yang

 

Dear Esteem Colleagues:

It is a great honor to be serving as your president this year. Since our organization was chartered in 1993 we have grown to close to 300 Life-Time members. The purpose of our organization is to promote the education of the medical and dental doctors, students and community health services. We provide a voice for our doctors to express their opinions and establish network among our members. Our medical members are closely affiliated with Harris County Medical Society, Texas Medical Society. Our dental members are active among Greater Houston Dental Society and Texas Dental Association. With the generous support of our local community, dedicated members and related industries, our organization continues to flourish and we are grateful for our achievements.

With hard work of my predecessors- Yvonne Kew and Jay Zhu , we establish our website. We stream lined our member data and with Cynthia Woo’s help, we hired her husband- Andy Chan to serves as our Webmaster and we set up electronic membership payment system. Now, potential members can join our organization with a simple click of finger. My goal for the year is to continue membership growth and increase our website revenue, establish a Help-Wanted section within our website to allow our members to place ads for advertisement for potential associate positions, rental space, and practice sales.

Our monthly CME meeting continues to provide interesting topics to our members along with sampling of fine cuisine at top restaurants throughout the city. For the month of May, our meeting was at Osteria Antica where our members learned about the re-formulation of NSAIDS, which was sponsored by Iroko Pharmaceuticals Inc. For month of June, Michael Yueng-one of our Life-Time member was the speaker on topic of Botox at Charrasco’s. Next up: Personal and Practice Finance at BBVA/Compass Bank- Galleria. Our monthly CME meeting continues to be a draw to members to socialize and network, and it’s possible all due to the hard work and dedication of Lina Ching. She is working double duty as both CME director and President-elect for next year.

This year, we have a very special Key Note Speaker for our Scholarship Gala: Dr. Yuen-Tseh Lee of Academia Sinica of Taiwan. I met with Dr. Lee in Taipei last month and he is excited about our gala. It was a great honor to have a Nobel winner to come to our gala and take part in our celebration. This will be the last year that Dr. Lee travels to Houston. We moved our scholarship gala to March 14, 2015 to accommodate Dr. Lee’s schedule. Therefore, we will have our event in Fung’s Kitchen. The price will be higher due to lack of flexibility of our speaker and facility. I had the pleasure to meeting Dr. Lee in person in Taiwan and hand delivered our invitation and discuss the gala (please see photo) with him. Thanks to Ted Shih for securing Dr. Lee as our keynote speaker.

We have many activities in the planning phase for this upcoming year. Next Up: August Restaurant Month. Location and date will be announced shortly, please be on the lookout for an email announcement. This will be a family outing for our members and sport event in the winter is in the planning phase. Our members may enjoy the additional benefit of CADAH sponsorship. Please be on the lookout in our website in the future.

Once again, thank all of you for your support and making this organization great.

Sincerely,

Susan H. Yang DDS
CADAH-President
