46 Aurora doctors recognized by Green Bay TV stationFriday, December 17, 2004
A total of 46 Aurora Health Care physicians were recognized among the best in their field in WFRV-CBS Channel 5’s Doctors Rate Doctors series.
Doctors Rate Doctors is a survey that asks physicians to rate their peers. Channel 5 mails questionnaires to doctors throughout the viewing area asking whom they would recommend, other than themselves, to a family member needing to see a doctor.
The station sent out 1,500 questionnaires and received approximately 450 responses highlighting doctors in five areas – general practice, pediatrics, OB/GYN, orthopedics and cardiology. One doctor was selected from a large community and one from a small community in each category except cardiology.
Dr. Alfredo Diaz, an internal medicine physician at the Aurora Two Rivers Clinic, was named the top general practitioner in a small community and was profiled on the 10 p.m. news in November. He received the most votes in his category.
Dr. Eric Duwell, a family practitioner at the Aurora Health Center in Oshkosh, was recognized in two categories – pediatrics and general practice.
