DALLAS, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- A dozen nephrologists associated with Dallas Nephrology Associates (DNA) have been named to D Magazine's list of the Best Doctors in Dallas for 2010. Nephrologists are specialists in the treatment of kidney disease, transplants, hypertension and complicated metabolic disorders.
"What is most gratifying about this special recognition is that the selection was made by physicians in our area who were asked who they would refer members of their own family or patients to if they needed a medical specialist in our practice area," said Dr. Ruben Velez President and CEO of Dallas Nephrology Associates. "This is the 10th year in a row that our physicians have been recognized for their expertise and quality of care."
DNA physicians recognized this year include: Dr. Andrew Fenves, Dr. Steven Hays, Dr. Judson Hunt, Dr. Mark Lerman, Dr. Freda Levy, Dr. David Nesser, Dr. C. Venkata Ram, Dr. Steve Rinner, Dr. Russell L. Silverstein, Dr. Ruben Velez, Dr. Bruce Wall and Dr. Michael Wiederkehr.
