How does someone become a Top Doctor?

Phoenix Magazine uses a rigorous process to determine their top doctors. First, they obtain lists of all Valley physicians. This list includes M.D.s (medical doctors), D.O.s (osteopathic doctors), N.D.s/N.M.D.s (naturopathic doctors) and podiatrists. The publication then randomly mails surveys to 5,000 area physicians and asks them to nominate peers who they believe are the best in each of 50 specialties.

By using a peer-review survey as opposed to a patient survey, Phoenix Magazine is able to get what they believe are the most accurate representations of the medical landscape in the area. In their eyes, while patient opinions are certainly important, medical professionals are generally better at assessing other medical professionals.

Dr. Wolff received the most votes from his peers and was chosen for a spotlight profile in the 2013 Top Doc issue. He is also featured in a video describing his work as a physiatrist.
