U.S. News & World Report Names Houston Colorectal Surgeon Among Top 1% of Doctors

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 10/02/12 -- Dr. Eric Haas, a board certified colorectal surgeon in Houston, has been selected as one of the top one percent of doctors by U.S. News & World Report. Featured in a list of 31,000 physicians in a wide range of medical specialties, Dr. Haas says inclusion among the Top Doctors in the U.S. is a true honor, and one he sees as a reward for his hard work and dedication to providing his patients with the best quality care possible. He says making the U.S. News & World Report Top Doctors list will undoubtedly serve as further motivation for his continued pursuit of the safest techniques and the most advanced technology in rectal and colon surgery.

Each year, U.S. News & World Report compiles a list of the top doctors from every state in a number of fields, varying from cardiology and pediatrics to psychiatry and colorectal surgery. Doctors are selected by a peer-nomination process through the New York City-based research company Castle Connolly, and then reviewed by a physician-led team to determine the final selections. Since no doctor can pay to be included or nominate themselves, Dr. Haas says having his peers think so highly of his commitment to patient care is both inspiring and gratifying. He adds, "It is very humbling to be nominated by my peers and placed among such a select group of physicians and surgeons around the nation."

Focusing intensively on laparoscopic colon and rectal surgery in Houston, Dr. Haas provides treatment for patients suffering from a wide range of ailments including colon and anal cancer, diverticulitis and inflammatory bowel disease, fecal incontinence, hemorrhoids, and numerous other concerns. He says helping his patients live a healthier, more comfortable life through his clinical research and promotion of best practices has been his primary goal since he began practicing, and he hopes to continue striving for the most effective procedures for his patients.

In regards to what aspects of his patient care played the largest role in his Top Doctor nomination, Dr. Haas says, "I believe that technological advances in minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery, as well as our academic promotion in enhanced recovery following colon surgery has in part played a large role in the selection for the US News & World Report Top Doctors list."

Looking forward, Dr. Haas says he is excited to be listed among the ranks as a top colon surgeon, and eager to keep serving his community to the best of his ability. He adds that while lists such as the U.S. News & World Report Top Doctors can be a valuable guide, he encourages patients to conduct their own research as well to ensure they find the practice and surgeon that fits their needs best.
