HOW ARE SUPER DOCTORS SELECTED
Survey of Doctors
Each year physicians nominate colleagues they know to be exceptional in their specified field. Physicians are asked to consider the following question: “If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?”
We evaluate candidates on 10 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.
Years of experience
- Hospital appointments
- Professional activities
- Leadership positions
- Academic achievements/positions
- Board certifications
- Publications, lectures & presentations
- Honors and awards
- Other outstanding achievement
Total points received from nominations, research, and blue ribbon panel review are calculated and only the highest-scoring doctors are included on the Super Doctors list. Dr. Joseph is honored to be listed among the Rising Stars in Newport Beach which places him in the top 2.5 percent in this region.
