Best Doctors in America List for 2010

Congratulations for being named in the Best Doctors list for 2010!

James B. Lewis, M.D., and Kathryn M. Ryder, M.D., M.S., have been named in the Best Doctors in America® List for 2010.  Dr. Lewis is Associate Chief of Staff for Education, and Dr. Ryder is Acting Chief, Medical Service, at the Memphis Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

The Best Doctors in America® list includes the nation’s most respected specialists and outstanding primary care physicians. The list represents the top 5% of doctors in the U.S., both public and private, with more than 46,000 doctors in over 400 specialties and subspecialties across the country.

These are the doctors that other doctors recognize as the best in their fields. Doctors cannot pay a fee and are not paid to be listed and cannot nominate or vote for themselves. The helps remove potential bias from the selection.

Today the list is respected by the medical profession and patients alike as the source of top quality medical information.
