More than 100 Tucson physicians affiliated with the Arizona Health Sciences Center (AHSC) at the University of Arizona are included among the 2009-2010 Best Doctors in America database.


The database includes about 45,000 U.S. physicians in more than 40 specialties and 400 subspecialties of medicine. They represent the top 3 to 5 percent of specialists in the country, according to Best Doctors Inc of Boston (www.bestdoctors.com).


The list is based on a biennial survey by Best Doctors Inc of tens of thousands of leading physicians who were asked whom they would go to for treatment in their own specialty. Founded in 1989 by doctors affiliated with Harvard University, the Best Doctors database helps patients identify specialists for complex medical cases or second opinions.


The 2009-2010 list includes more than 100 AHSC doctors in 25 specialties. Most are on the faculty of the University of Arizona College of Medicine and are members of University Physicians Healthcare. They practice primarily at University Medical Center and its physician offices, at the University Physicians Hospital and Outpatient Clinics, and at the Southern Arizona Veterans Health Care System.
