CITYVIEW_TOP_DOCS_LOGOSEvery year, Cityview Magazine seeks the input of practicing physicians in the Knoxville area to compile a list of Top Docs. Participating physicians are asked to recommend whom they would call upon in specific areas of practice if they, or a loved one, needed care. It is an honor to be recognized amongst a group of peers and in 2015, nine Premier Surgical Associates physicians were included on the Cityview list. One of which, was recognized in two distinct categories.
