82 members of the EvergreenHealth and EvergreenHealth Monroe medical staff were recently honored by Seattle Met magazine as among the best in the region in the publication’s annual “Top Doctors” issue.

Voters nominated providers via an online survey hosted by independent survey provider, Professional Research Services, which measured physician criteria such as years of experience, expertise, patient relationships and satisfaction, and compliance with industry best practices.

In addition, earlier this year Seattle magazine released its own listing of the region’s “Top Doctors,” naming 37 EvergreenHealth providers among the total 446 selected. Seattle Met named 19 of these physicians on its 2018 list.
