Coram recognized as 'Top Surgeon'

Rita Coram, M.D., FACC

Nothing beats positive recognition from your peers.

Rita Coram, M.D., FACC, was recently named a "Top Surgeon" by Louisville Magazine in polling conducted by the Greater Louisville Medical Society.

Coram, an assistant professor of medicine in the University of Louisville Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, was noted in the category of "Cardiac Catheterization" in the magazine's August 2014 issue.

"Top Surgeons" were selected through a survey that was mailed in April 2014 to all active physicians who are members of the GLMS. Through a points system based on the responses, a physician had to receive a score that placed him or her in the top one-fifth of the total number of surgeons who received mention in a given category.

"To be chosen by my own peers to care for their loved ones is the ultimate praise," Coram said. "I am honored and I thank them for their trust."

Coram was the only member of the UofL Department of Medicine to receive the "Top Surgeon" recognition.
