UNT Health physicians named ‘Super Docs’

Nine UNT Health physicians were chosen as "Texas Super Docs" for the December 2008 edition of Texas Monthly, on newsstands now.

More than 40,000 medical professionals across Texas were asked to nominate one or more doctors, other than themselves, for the list, based on the question, "If you needed medical care, which doctor would you choose?"

The list also includes Texas doctors who have received special recognition from their peers or demonstrated expertise in their specialties, based on the replies received from polled physicians.

Kathleen Crowley, MD, Internal Medicine
Sam Buchanan Jr., DO, General Surgery (retired)
John Fling, MD, Allergy & Immunology
David Lichtman, MD, Orthopaedic Surgery
