Seattle Metropolitan Magazine has named 120 providers at Overlake Medical Center & Clinics as “Top Doctors” for 2020.

Seattle Met and Professional Research Services partnered to orchestrate an online peer-review survey for the magazine’s 15th annual “Top Doctors” list. According to Seattle Met’s website, medical and nursing professionals are asked to nominate up to five physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants “per specialty that they deem the best within King, Snohomish, Kitsap, and Pierce Counties. Practitioners may not vote for themselves.”

“Seattle Met asks healthcare workers to nominate providers they would recommend to a family member or friend, and that itself is a great honor,” said David Knoepfler, MD, chief medical officer at Overlake. “This recognition validates that our providers are among the best in their fields.”

This year’s list features 84 specialties and, according to Seattle Met, this is their “most methodical, comprehensive and useful list yet.” Participants have been asked to nominate providers based on years of experience, competency, rapport with patients, patient satisfaction, compliance with care recommendations and ability to work effectively with colleagues across specialties to deliver the best patient care.

Physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants listed below by specialty include those employed by Overlake Medical Center & Clinics and those on medical staff with privileges to practice at Overlake:
