The Healing Hands of SJ’s Top Docs

The power of a physician’s hands is remarkable. They comfort, control and best of all, they cure. Whether in an exam room or in surgery, physicians rely on their hands to help and hold their patients. The everyday tools of their trade are most certainly their hands…their healing hands.

We sent ballots to SJ physicians asking them which of their peers they would choose to care for a family member. The votes were tallied, and we compiled our 2013 Top Docs list. Take a look at the physicians other doctors say are the best in their field.
