Drs. Cliff Char, Ian Chait, Klane Hales, and Paul Yost were selected for inclusion on the Southern California Super Doctors 2013 list compiled by Key Professional Media and published in Los Angeles Magazine. Also, Drs. Char, and Eric Pearson were chosen by the Orange County Medical Association as “Physicians of Excellence” in Orange Coast Magazine.
“I am honored to be chosen as a Super Doc and Physician of Excellence,” Dr. Char said. “It is difficult for me to accept because I know that there are many other physicians who care and blend their skills and knowledge with excellence to provide compassionate care. I am grateful for Allied Anesthesia Medical Group to allow me to provide free anesthesia care around the world and to be able to practice the best anesthesia care that I can.”
The Super Doctors list identifies physicians, who are well respected and recognized among their peers. Each candidate undergoes an independent evaluation by research staff, a peer review by practice area and a good-standing and disciplinary check.
Candidates are evaluated on 10 indicators, including: years of experience, hospital appointments, fellowships, professional activities, leadership positions, academic achievements/positions, board certifications, publications, lectures, presentations, honors, awards and other outstanding achievements.
Applicants selected for the 2013 Physicians of Excellence honor were required to meet at least two of the following four criteria:
- Physician leadership
- Humanitarian service
- Unique contributions, significant awards and recognitions related to substantial contributions in medicine, healthcare, or on behalf of humanity.
