SB Magazine sent a confidential ballot to more than 1,500 local doctors and dentists. We asked to whom they would send their patients or loved ones in each of 68 categories. They could vote for up to three doctors per specialty. For the 13th consecutive year, we received an overwhelming response from the medical community. If you have a physician or dentists whom you like and trust, we recommend that you stay with that doctor.
