Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Byrd, who operates a full-service cosmetic surgery practice in Dallas, was recently named one of the Best Doctors in America, as selected by peers in his profession.
Dallas, Texas, January 2008 – Dr. Steve Byrd, a board-certified plastic surgeon practicing in Dallas for almost 30 years, has been selected as one of the Best Doctors in America, a nationwide list of doctors who stand out at the top of their profession. The Best Doctors list is based on feedback received from doctors rating other doctors on such factors as patient care and technical abilities.
“I’m honored to be selected as one of the Best Doctors in America,” says Dr. Byrd. “While patient care has always been the focus of my practice, it’s gratifying to be recognized as a leader in the profession by fellow doctors as well. For me, having such a wonderful group of satisfied patients is all the reward I need from my profession, and that’s what excites me about practicing plastic surgery.”
At his Dallas plastic surgery practice, Dr. Byrd offers cosmetic surgery for the body, breast, and face, along with minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures at EpiCentre Medical Spa. His appointment to the Best Doctors list is the latest in a long line of recognitions in his career as a Dallas plastic surgeon, including being named a “Super Doctor” by Texas Monthly Magazine and the recipient of the James Barrett Brown Award of the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons.
“I’d like to thank not only my friends and colleagues in the Dallas plastic surgery community, but also the larger group of incredibly gifted plastic surgeons across the country,” continues Dr. Byrd. “To be able to provide exceptional patient care locally and have that care recognized as among the best in the country is a great honor.”
Best Doctors, Inc., the organization that develops and reviews a list of over 50,000 highly-esteemed physicians, surgeons, and specialists worldwide, uses several criteria when selecting doctors for the list. The organization distributes peer-to-peer surveys to doctors in more than 400 subspecialties of medicine to identify the doctors regarded as most qualified to handle complex medical issues. The polling process is anonymous and confidential to ensure unbiased results. In addition, doctors are not paid in any way to participate in the survey. The peer review process requires every listed physician to be re-evaluated with each new survey.
About 1.5 million evaluations are collected annually, and only the top 5% of America’s doctors make the final Best Doctors cut. The Best Doctors in America database is a highly-esteemed listing that has been featured on dozens of television news programs as well as in major newspapers and magazines such as USA Today, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Men’s Health.
As one of the Best Doctors in America, Dr. Byrd will continue his commitment to the highest standards of patient care, the development of innovative surgical techniques, and the satisfaction of each and every one of the patients who select his Dallas cosmetic surgery practice.
