Seattle Met

The 2016 Seattle Met Top Doctors survey polled doctors, nurses and physician assistants across King, Snohomish, Kitsap and Pierce counties, asking “If you or a loved one needed medical care, whom would you choose?” Voters nominated their peers based on the provider’s level of experience and competency within their specialty, rapport with patients and ability to work effectively with colleagues across specialties to deliver the best care for patients. The top vote recipients were then vetted by the Washington State Department of Health to ensure good standing before being included on the list.

Seattle Magazine

For Seattle Magazine‘s 2016 Top Doctors survey, doctors in the Puget Sound area were asked to which physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants they would send a loved one for medical care. More than 1,000 healthcare professionals participated, with nearly 15,000 nominations. Data collection and evaluation was managed by a local research design and data collection company (GMA Research) and the online survey was managed by a website hosting and development firm (CHCS Internet Development). Several factors determined who appears on this list, including the number of nominations received by each physician, the area of specialty, the total number of physicians practicing in each specialty, the vote distribution, the standing of the candidates, geography, education and residency.
