The bariatric surgeons have been recognized as Texas Monthly Super Docs, Texas Rising Stars 2015.
Plano, TX, June 22, 2015 – The Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery is pleased to announce that two of its surgeons have been honored by Texas Monthly magazine. Doctors Chad Carlton and Thomas Roshek have been named 2015 Texas Rising Stars and will be honored in the magazine’s July edition.
“This is a tremendous honor for the Nicholson Clinic as a whole and Drs. Carlton and Roshek both,” says Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder and lead surgeon at the Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery. “Selection of this honor is based on rigorous criteria, speaking to the quality of care these professionals deliver along with their dedication to the field of bariatric surgery.”
Super Doctors are chosen as a result of an exhaustive selection process conducted each year by MSP Communications and its independent research team. The process begins with the nomination of candidates, as physicians are invited to recommend professional peers who are known to have a reputation for excellence in their chosen field. Candidates are also chosen through independent research conducted to find those physicians who have been honored in their field or have reached a notable level of achievement.
Once identified, candidates are vetted to assess qualifications, experience, professional achievement, board certifications, leadership positions, and more. This is followed by peer review in that physician’s specialty field. Only those physicians who have achieved the highest scores throughout this process are included in the final Super Doctors list - a prestigious group that represents only about 5% of the total physicians within each particular state or region. This list is then published in leading state and regional magazines.
Dr. Carlton is a Texas native who received his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. He is a fellowship trained laparoscopic and bariatric surgeon who was also recognized by Texas Monthly as a Rising Star in 2014.
Dr. Roshek is a board certified general surgeon and is fellowship trained in advanced laparoscopic and bariatric surgical procedures. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Roshek graduated from the University of Texas Medical School at Houston and was also previously recognized as a 2014 Rising Star.
“The Nicholson Clinic is committed to providing our patients with the highest level of care available,” says Dr. Nicholson. “This tremendous honor demonstrates our physicians’ dedication to this mission.”
