Record 62 Privia Physicians Named to Fort Worth Magazine’s “Top Doctors” List

A record 62 Privia Medical Group North Texas (PMGNTX) physicians have been recognized as “Top Doctors” in Fort Worth Magazine’s annual rankings that highlight some of the most respected and accomplished physicians in North Texas.   The 2022 list, published in the magazine’s April issue, includes more PMGNTX physicians than ever before.  The group’s previous record was 58 doctors, which was set last year.  In addition, PMGNTX physicians are recognized in a total of 16 medical specialty areas and represent more than one out of ten doctors on the prestigious list.  

To create the list of honorees, Fort Worth Magazine sent a 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 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 record 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 300 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, it is our mission to make health care better by putting our patients and their wellness first,” 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.”  

“PMGNTX physicians are laser-focused on their patients’ health and wellness.  Our proactive, evidence-based care utilizes the latest technologies and advancements in medicine,” Dr. Tatum continued.  “Having a medical home should mean something, and that’s why the patient is always our central focus and why we provide unhurried, comprehensive visits that allow the time necessary to develop an individualized care plan.”  

“We are so proud of all the physicians and other health care providers who are part of the Privia family – they work tirelessly every day to provide their patients with the very best care possible,” says Dr. Tatum.  And we are especially proud of our 62 members who have been recognized on the distinguished ‘Top Doctors’ list for 2022.  We congratulate them all on this high honor.”
