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.
