CERTAIN Investigators and Partners Voted Top Doctors

Five CERTAIN investigators were voted top doctors through a survey of over 1,400 doctors, nurses, and physician assistants in the Seattle area. The survey conducted by Seattle Met magazine asked respondents “If you or a loved one needed medical care, whom would you choose?” Rising to the top of over 13,000 nominations were:

John L. Gore, MD, MS: Clinical Expert for CERTAIN’s work in urology care
Heather Evans, MD, MS: Principal Investigator for mPOWEr (mobile Post-Operative Wound Evaluator)
Farhood Farjah, MD, MPH: Clinical Expert for CERTAIN's work in lung care
Mark Meissner, MD: Clinical Expert for CERTAIN’s work in vascular care
Thomas K. Varghese, Jr., MD, MS: Medical Director of Strong for Surgery

CERTAIN houses a suite of projects aimed at generating evidence and translating that evidence into practice in order to improve healthcare. By participating in these projects, our clinical practice partners at hospitals and clinics all over Washington state are improving healthcare delivery in a way that is meaningful to patients. It’s no surprise that many of these partners were recognized as top doctors:
