Dr. Brian Page, D.O., is honored in the 2011 Phoenix Magazine “Top Doctor” edition. Who picks the doctors? The physicians are selected through a peer-review survey. The theory is that medical professionals are best qualified to judge medical professionals. To select the physicians, PHOENIX magazine randomly surveys 5,000 Valley physicians, including M.D.s (medical doctors), D.O.s (osteopathic doctors), N.D.s/N.M.Ds (naturopathic doctors). Physicians must be board-certified by their respective boards to qualify.
