Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, Florida (August 8, 2019) – Sun Coast Bariatrics is proud to announce that Tiffany Jessee, DO, FACOS (Fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons), board certified general surgeon, was recently recognized as one of Tampa Bay’s Top Docs by Tampa Bay Magazine.
According to Tampa Bay Magazine over 9,000 surveys were mailed to physicians in Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco Counties. The magazine obtained the list of physicians from the Department of Health and these physicians included MDs (medical doctors), DOs (osteopathic physicians), and podiatrists. The physicians were asked to nominate their peers who, in their judgment, are the best in 52 separate medical specialties. The surveys were returned in anonymous, prepaid envelopes. The votes are then tallied, and the list is compiled.
