Orange County has 20,000 deaths a year, including 543 annual flu cases, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Super Doctors list, which includes more than 1,500 physicians from Orange County hospitals, is based on a rigorous, multi-step process that aims to identify physicians who have achieved the highest scores at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAP). Only the doctors with the highest scores are included in the "super doctors" list, but not the other doctors in the district.
A primary care physician who participated in the first wave of coronavirus cases in Orange County late last month told Voice of America that he has since tested, diagnosed and treated at least a dozen viral patients daily. Many of his patients, many of whom have been tested or treated themselves, wonder when it will be their next turn, even though they are all vaccinated against coronaviruses. Another colleague from the field of private medicine, a private doctor who practices dermatology and pathology, says he is not sure when he can get vaccinated.
