Topping the ‘Top Doctors’ list
UPMC claims 82 percent of Pittsburgh magazine’s top-ranked physicians

Dr. Kassam graces cover of Pittsburgh magazine as one of area's top doctorsWhen the May issue of Pittsburgh magazine was released to subscribers this week, 110 UPMC and UPMC-affiliated physicians were among the 134 in the “Top Doctors” listing. In most categories, UPMC doctors were the only physicians recognized. The magazine commissions the independent survey of local doctors annually.

“Because UPMC is the largest health system in the region, it’s not surprising that our doctors would be well represented on the list,” says Loren Roth, MD, MPH, UPMC chief medical officer. “But the dominance of UPMC physicians across so many categories on the list underscores the exceptional quality of our medical staff.”

Gracing the cover of the magazine that hits the newsstands April 27 is UPMC’s Amin Kassam, MD, who was listed among the top neurosurgeons. A story chronicling Dr. Kassam and one of his patients is the focal point of the cover story.

Here is the complete list of UPMC and UPMC-affiliated physicians and their specialties (or visit www.upmc.com).
