Congratulations to radiation oncologists Allen Chen and Richard Valicenti, who have been included on a list of the Sacramento region's best doctors by an organization that bases its selections on surveys of other physicians. The story is featured in the December 2012 issue of Sacramento Magazine and currently available on news stands.

The "Best Doctors" list is based on responses to a survey of physicians that asks them: "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?"

According to Best Doctors, founded in 1989 by two physicians affiliated with Harvard Medical School, this survey replicates "the informal, peer-to-peer referral process that doctors themselves use to determine the most appropriate physicians for individual cases."
