WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 10/11/12 -- In its recent compilation of Top Doctors from across the country, U.S. News & World Report has chosen Dr. Mark Richards as one of the top plastic surgeons in the nation for his years of dedicated service and quality results. The list is released annually and features more than 31,000 physicians in a wide range of medical specialties.
The U.S. News & World Report Top Doctors directory is designed as a resource for patients looking for reputable and trustworthy medical professionals specializing in everything from pediatrics and cardiology to plastic surgery in Washington, DC. Aided by the research company Castle Connolly, doctors are selected through a peer-nomination process and then reviewed by a physician-led team to determine the final list. Additionally, according to the rules of the U.S. News & World Report Top Doctors compilation, no doctor can nominate themselves or pay to be included in the directory.
"Because of the independent nature of the rating process, I was quite honored to be included in U.S. News & World Report Top Doctors list. I try very hard to tailor optimal treatment plans for each unique patient. It is nice to see this extra effort recognized."
In his medical practice, Dr. Richards focuses on a number of aesthetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures varying from breast augmentation and facelifts to bio-identical hormone therapy. He says: "Being able to provide my patients with procedures that add confidence and vibrancy to their life is a truly rewarding experience, and one that continues to motivate my efforts as a plastic surgeon."
Whether he is performing a facelift or advising his patients on the benefits of hormone replacement therapy, Dr. Richards says his first priority has always been to treat each patient with compassionate care and the most effective techniques. Dr. Richards stated he was grateful to be included in the U.S. News & World Report Top Doctors list, and looks forward to continuing to provide his patients with the individualized quality treatment they deserve. Regardless of a patient's medical concerns, directories like Top Doctors can offer a useful guide for patients looking for a procedure; however, the Washington, DC plastic surgeon encourages patients to also conduct their own research in order to ensure they find a doctor that is specialized for their needs and board-certified by a medical board recognized by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
