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.

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
