About Texas Super Doctors and Rising Stars
Just 2.5% of Texas physicians are selected as Super Doctors in more than 40 different fields of medicine. Rising Stars are the elite among this already select group. They have distinguished themselves in their field in the eyes of colleagues and patients.
This rigorous selection process begins with nomination by a physician’s peers. A research panel then looks at each nominee, weighing factors such as reputation in the field, years of experience, honors, publications, lectures, academic achievements, fellowships, and other professional achievements.
Thereafter, a review panel selects the best physicians from each group, including those in little known and niche areas of medicine. Before final selection, the panel verifies that the physician is an active member in their discipline, and that they have not been subject to any board discipline.
