Opportunities for Physicians
Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center Physicians were selected for inclusion in Best Doctors® In America database; more than any other health care organization in the central Pennsylvania region. Best Doctors is a nationally recognized database that contains names and professional profiles of physicians chosen through an exhaustive peer-review survey in which thousands of physicians are asked to name the best clinical practitioners in their specialties.
“We are extremely proud of our many dedicated and compassionate practitioners. The inclusion of so many of our physicians in the Best Doctors database reaffirms that our providers are respected by their peers for their clinical excellence, innovation and commitment to their patients.”
