Overlake announces 49 providers on Seattle Magazine’s Top Doctors 2019 List

Bellevue, Wash. – April 1, 2019 – Forty-nine Overlake Medical Center and Clinics physicians have received “Top Doctors 2019” recognition by Seattle Magazine in its annual list that includes 397 physicians overall. The list, which was published in the April 2019 issue, includes only physicians who have been nominated by their peers; they do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as a Top Doctor.   

“Overlake takes great pride in our highly skilled providers across this wide range of specialties, and we are proud they are being recognized by their own peers,” said Overlake Chief Medical Officer David Knoepfler, MD. “Every one of them, indeed, all of our physicians, advanced providers and staff, are dedicated to daily excellence, safety and delivering compassionate care to every patient we treat.”  

Seattle Magazine, which connects to more than 190,000 readers each month, partnered with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a healthcare research and information company founded in 1991 to help guide consumers to America’s top doctors and top hospitals.
