Top Doctors: 54 Privia North Texas Members Honored on Prestigious List

Privia Medical Group North Texas (PMGNTX) providers are once again featured prominently on Fort Worth Magazine’s annual list of Top Doctors, a prestigious ranking of the region’s most respected and accomplished physicians. 

The 2023 Top Doctors list includes 54 PMGNTX physicians across 15 medical specialty areas.  Nearly one out of every ten doctors on the list is a PMGNTX member.  In the Obstetrics & Gynecology specialty area, 16 out of 29 Top Doctors – 55% – are Privia physicians.   

To compile the list of honorees, Fort Worth Magazine sends a voluntary survey each year 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.  This is an open-ended survey; the magazine provides the specialty areas but does not provide a list of names to choose from. “The physicians identified the professionals they regard as being leaders in those fields,” according to the magazine.  The results are then reviewed by a select panel of physicians before the list is finalized. 

The large number of PMGNTX physicians on the list reflects the quality of care the group provides and the outstanding reputation Privia doctors have with their peers and their patients.  With more than 370 providers across the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, PMGNTX is a leading health care provider in one of the largest and fastest-growing regions in the country.  The company’s focus on wellness and value-based care continues to move the needle on health outcomes and quality of life for patients. 

“At Privia Medical Group North Texas, we are on a mission to change health care for the better by putting the patient first, always,” says Dr. Larry Tatum, President and CEO of PMGNTX.  “Our physicians provide exceptional health care to their patients every day across North Texas, and we are thankful for all of them.”

“We are especially proud of our 54 colleagues who have been recognized as Top Doctors in 2023,” Dr. Tatum continued.   “These physicians’ skill and commitment to their patients’ well-being is a great credit to both our profession and our organization, and we salute them for this high honor.”
