FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dr. Thomas Crawford Receives “Top Doctors 2019” Honor
in Portland Monthly Magazine’s Annual List
Portland, OR, January 5, 2019 – Ophthalmologist Thomas Crawford, MD of Oregon Eye Specialists was honored as one of the “Top Doctors for 2019”, by Portland Monthly Magazine. This is the second year in a row a doctor from the practice has been named to the peer-vetted list published annually by the magazine.
Now in its 15th year, the Top Doctors list is compiled through peer nominations solicited by Portland Monthly from every licensed doctor, physician assistant, and registered nurse in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties. The nominees are submitted by practitioners in response to a single question: “Who would they trust the care of their own loved ones?” An independent, voluntary, and anonymous panel of doctors, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners representing local hospitals and clinics further assess each finalist by their accomplishments, education, patient satisfaction surveys, and other criteria. In 2018, the final list of top doctors represented the top 5 percent of nominees across 78 medical specialties.
Dr. Dinelli Monson, Oregon Eye Specialists President and 2018 Top Doctor, wasn’t surprised by her colleague’s nomination to this year’s list. “Dr. Crawford leads with a compassionate heart, and treats his staff, patients and colleagues with a kindness that is to be emulated. He is an exceptional physician and surgeon, respected and admired by all who know him. He stands strong as a pillar in our community.”
Dr. Crawford has been practicing comprehensive ophthalmology in Portland since 1984, with interests in cataract surgery, diabetic eye care, glaucoma and macular degeneration. A board-certified ophthalmologist, he has chaired the Division of Ophthalmology at Providence Portland Medical Center for many years, and has provided clinical instruction at the Casey Eye Institute, Oregon Health & Science University. Dr. Crawford also practices at Legacy Good Samaritan and Legacy Emanuel hospitals, and joined Oregon Eye Specialists in 1994, as a founding partner.
