Each year, Albuquerque The Magazine poses a single question to Albuquerque physicians: “If you had to refer a loved one to a local doctor other than yourself, to whom would you refer them?” Local doctors, who were given access to a ballot through their medical license numbers, voted. Physicians with the most votes were recognized as the finest in their respective fields.
