Heather Kent, (757) 668-7554,

Norfolk, VA – Twenty-one CHKD physicians have been named to the 2017-2018 Best Doctors in America® list by Best Doctors, Inc. Approximately 4 percent of doctors in America earn this prestigious honor as a result of the biennial Best Doctors Poll.

The Gallup®-certified polling process begins with a survey asking physicians currently on the Best Doctors in America® list, "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, who would you choose?” Best Doctors, Inc. reviews and verifies the credentials of each physician identified through the survey before finalizing its list.

“I’d like to congratulate the CHKD physicians acknowledged by Best Doctors in America for their ongoing contributions to our success. Through the extraordinary skills and compassionate care of all our providers, our patients receive the very best every day,” says Jim Dahling, president and CEO of CHKD Health System.

CHKD physicians named to the list are featured below, in alphabetical order, along with their area of specialty.  

CHKD is the only freestanding children’s hospital in Virginia and serves the medical and surgical needs of children throughout greater Hampton Roads, the Eastern Shore of Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. The not-for-profit CHKD Health System operates primary care pediatric practices, surgical practices, multi-service health centers, urgent care centers and satellite offices throughout its service region.
