Dr. Boyce Named a 2014 Cityview Top Doc 2014
Cityview magazine and the Knoxville medical community have selected the Top Doctors for 2014. The list was featured in the March/April issue of Cityview. Stephen G. Boyce, MD, FACS, Founder and Director of the New Life Center for Bariatric Surgery and creator of Bari Life Bariatric Supplements, is included as one of the Top Doctors in the field of General Surgery for his specialization in the area of Bariatric Surgery.
According to Cityview, physicians are chosen for the Top Doctors honor by referring physicians in the Knoxville region. “Cityview once again honors the outstanding men and women in our medical community whose dedication and skill have earned the respect of both their patients and their fellow doctors. Every year we ask the area’s referring physicians to tell us whom they would choose if they needed specialized care. This is not a popularity contest or a paid survey. Rather, these results are the opinions of the practicing physicians on the front lines of the healthcare industry-the people who see new and unusual cases and situations everyday require specialized medical care. This survey recognizes those who have the utmost regard of the colleagues and peers.” (Cityview Magazine, March/April, p. 85).
Dr. Boyce is a pioneer in bariatric surgery in the Knoxville community, performing surgical weight loss procedures for more than twenty years. He is honored to be recognized, especially since he has specialized exclusively in bariatric surgery for the past decade.
“It is very encouraging to me that our primary care doctors are now thinking of bariatric surgery as an important and needed surgical specialty,” explains Dr. Boyce. “It wasn’t long ago that even physicians didn’t understand the need for bariatric surgery. The fact that bariatric surgery is being recognized as “specialized care” is very encouraging for the bariatric patient community.”
