I often get emails from readers asking if I know of any good, COPD doctors in their area. Finally, I have a site I can send them to.
USA Today has put together an awesome list of about 8,800 of the most influential doctors in more than 300 metropolitan areas in the United States. The best part, of the doctors that they include on their list, are docs who specialize in COPD.
Because patients are demanding more detailed information from their doctors, (and rightly so), the Santa Fe medical information firm, Qforma, created the list especially for USA Today. The goal of the project is to offer patients, who are also consumers, an innovative way to go about choosing a specialist that best suits them.
