Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist Peter Watson, MD of Northwest Perinatal Center was named in this year’s “Top Doctors” list published by Portland Monthly Magazine in January. The list is published annually and comprised of physicians voted as leaders in their specialty by their peers. The magazine sent ballots to 5,000 doctors and 2,000 nurses in the Portland metro area and Southwest Washington. Survey participants were asked “If you or a loved one were in need of medical help, which doctor would you choose?” Respondents could name one doctor in as many as 76 specialties. Doctors who received the most votes in each field are included in the list.
“Pete has been the bedrock of perinatal medicine in Portland,” says Chief Medical Officer Dan Schrinsky, M.D., “he has earned the support and respect of nearly every obstetrician and midwife in Oregon through his decency, effort and the quality of his work. Patients appreciate that he respects them and is invested in helping them with some of the most difficult problems they could ever imagine.”
