LAS VEGAS Las Vegas Life, known as the city magazine in Las Vegas, premieres its “Top Doctors 2012” issue May 2012 ($4.99).

Top Doctors 2012” features leading physicians throughout Southern Nevada. This year, Las Vegas Life collaborated with Avvo, a Seattle-based company that rates and profiles dental, legal and medical professionals.

These dynamic ratings are refreshed as new information is obtained from the medical industry and its certifying, licensing and disciplinary boards.

The annual listing highlights the best physicians in 34 different specialties. Medical areas covered are allergy/immunology, bariatric surgery, cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, dermatology, diagnostic radiology, endocrinology, family medicine, gastroenterology, general surgery, geriatric medicine, gynecological oncology, hematology oncology, infectious diseases, infertility, internal medicine, LASIK surgery, nephrology, neurology, neurosurgery, obstetrics/gynecology, ophthalmology, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngology, pediatric cardiology, pediatrics, plastic surgery, psychiatry, pulmonary disease, radiation oncology, refractive/cataract eye surgery, rheumatology, urology and vascular surgery.
