More than 40 Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Physicians Receive Seattle Magazine “Top Doctors” Recognition

Seattle Magazine has recognized 46 physicians in 23 specialties on their 2021 list.

Seattle, WA (May 17, 2021) – Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is proud to announce that over 40 physicians are included in the Seattle Magazine 2021Top Doctors list. Seattle Magazine is a local monthly magazine that publishes articles on Seattle events, attractions, lifestyle and other Northwest news.

This is the 16th year for the Top Doctors list, which highlights high-performing healthcare providers in the region. The Top Doctors list is peer voted and includes doctors, physician assistants and nurse practitioners in more than 60 specialties.

“Our dedicated physicians take pride in the world-class care they provide their patients in every interaction at SCCA,” said Nancy Davidson, MD, president and executive director of SCCA. “I am pleased to see nearly 50 physicians from SCCA on the Top Doctors list, and it is a testament to their commitment to caring for their patients throughout their cancer journey.”

The list was created in partnership with Professional Research Services and polled health care practitioners licensed by the Washington State Department of Health in King, Snohomish, Kitsap, and Pierce counties, asking, “If you or a loved one needed care, whom would you choose?” Voters nominated peers based on years of experience, rapport with patients, patient satisfaction and other elements.
