Best Doctors in America® 2017-2018


Pediatric Health Care Alliance is proud to recognize our pediatricians named on the "Best Doctors in America®" list.

PHCA is pleased to note multiple years of recognition for several of our pediatricians, as listed next to their name below. Our doctors comprise nearly 50% of the current list for primary care pediatricians in Tampa Bay.

The Best Doctors in America® are chosen through an exhaustive peer-review survey that asks: "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?" Only physicians who earned the consensus support of their peers were included, about 5% of doctors in America. The List is considered a leading resource for linking members with expert medical care, and has been recognized by top news sources including CNN, USA Today, and Woman's Day.
