Memorial Medical Group Physicians among Louisiana's Top Docs

The Memorial Medical Group recently had five physicians make the list of Louisiana’s top doctors in a recent survey of their peers conducted for Louisiana Life magazine for 2015.

  • Cardiology: Dr. J. King White
  • Family Medicine: Dr. Alan LeBato
  • Orthopedic Surgery: Dr. Nathan Cohen
  • Pulmonology: Drs. R. Craig Broussard and Ben F. Thompson, III
  • Critical Care Medicine: Dr. Ben F. Thompson, III

Louisiana Life utilized the services of Best Doctors, Inc. to gather ratings from a database of professionals who are highly regarded by their peers. Those professionals are in turn interviewed for their recommendations.

Best Doctors contacts each doctor on the previous list and asks the same question: “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty and you couldn’t treat them yourself, to whom would you refer them?” Every physician has the opportunity both to comment confidentially on the other doctors included in his or her specialty and to make additional nominations. As new names are added to the pool, each undergoes the same peer-evaluation process.
