At perhaps no time in living memory has the medical profession been the focus of so much attention as throughout the coronavirus pandemic. In the face of a crisis of such magnitude, this is only natural. Of course, personal medical crises are not confined to global outbreaks, instead striking some of us every day in a myriad of ways. And when they do, the first thing on our minds is access to superior medical care.

That’s why each year at Pasadena Magazine, we survey the local medical community to seek their opinions about who among them deserves recognition as the best of the best. In partnership with Professional Research Services who conduct the balloting, we compile and publish a listing of those medical professionals whom their peers have elevated for recognition. All Top Docs are vetted through the California Medical Association to ensure they are currently licensed and under no investigation or sanction. All qualifying doctors with unblemished records become a Pasadena Magazine Top Doctor.
