Congratulations! 49 Privia Members Named “Top Doctors”

The 2019 Fort Worth Magazine Top Doctors list is out, and 49 Privia Medical Group North Texas (PMGNTX) physicians are included on the prestigious list.  The Top Doctors feature appears in the magazine’s April issue.   

This year, PMGNTX physicians are recognized in a total of 21 specialty areas.  To select the physicians who receive this honor, the magazine sends an annual voluntary survey to more than 4,500 Tarrant County-area physicians, asking them to vote for the colleagues they believe to be the best in a variety of practice areas.  The results are then reviewed by a select panel of physicians. 

The substantial number of PMGNTX physicians on the list is a reflection of the quality of care the group provides and the group’s continued growth; with more than 300 providers across the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, PMGNTX is providing health care services to a growing number of North Texans every year.  The company’s focus on wellness and value-based health care continues to move the needle on health care outcomes and quality of life for patients. 

“Whether it’s in obstetrics and gynecology, primary care, surgery, pediatrics or any one of the dozens of specialty areas our physicians practice in, Privia Medical Group North Texas is making health care better,” says CEO and President Dr. Larry Tatum.  “We’re changing health care to what it ought to be – from a ‘sick care’ system to one that is purpose-built for keeping people healthy.”

“We are proud of all the physicians and other health care providers who are part of the Privia family – they’re working hard every day to provide their patients with the very best care possible,” continues Dr. Tatum.  And we are exceptionally proud of our 49 members who have been recognized on the distinguished Top Doctors list for 2019.  We congratulate them all on this honor.”
