LAS VEGAS (June 6, 2018) – Desert Radiology, a premier diagnostic imaging center, has won numerous awards for outstanding medical excellence over the 50+ years it has been servicing communities of Southern Nevada. This month, their list of accolades became even longer when Vegas Inc.’s Health Care Quarterly recognized five of the center’s radiologists as Top Docs for 2018.

Winning doctors included Dr. Rajneesh Agrawal, Dr. Paul Bandt, Dr. Ashkok Gupta, Dr. Steve Topham, and Dr. Alan Weissman, causing Desert Radiology to dominate the award’s Radiology category. 

Vegas Inc.’s Health Care Quarterly determines which physicians make the Top Docs list by tapping the power of unbiased referrals. Every year, 6,000 doctors, dentists, and medical professionals in the Southern Nevada area are anonymously surveyed about which of their peers they would highly recommend in a given set of specialties. The thousands of answers are tallied and compiled into a list of the top names in each category.

“Our mission is to stay on the cutting edge of radiology so that we can best serve our community,” says Matthew T. Grimes, COO of Desert Radiology. “Health Care Quarterly is a trusted name in our industry and we are honored to have made the list and that so many of our peers would refer their patients to us.” 

In the medical industry, trusted referrals are revered as the best resource for making an informed decision when choosing a doctor. Certainly, referrals from a patient’s friends and family members are an excellent way to navigate choices, but even more powerful are referrals from other trusted physicians that understand the complexities of quality patient care. 

“Being named as a 2018 Top Doc is certainly a testament to our excellent radiologists who are continuously raising the bar when it comes to quality patient care,” says Richard E. Bodager, CEO of Desert Radiology. “We look forward to more great years of collaboration with each of them.”

“We aim to support our players and provide access to the best medical care in Southern Nevada,” said Bill Laimbeer, Las Vegas Aces President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach. “Desert Radiology shares our commitment to care for people and to support the community.”

The partnership with the Las Vegas Aces furthers Desert Radiology’s long-standing commitment of supporting professional and minor league sports and collegiate athletics. The diagnostic imaging company recently announced partnerships with the Las Vegas Lights Club (FC) and the Vegas Golden Knights. Additionally, Desert Radiology has similar partnerships with the Las Vegas 51s and the athletic department at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. 

“This sponsorship reiterates our ongoing commitment to the Southern Nevada community,” said Richard Bodager, Chief Executive Officer of Desert Radiology. “We’re honored to be able to provide quality diagnostic care to the talented players of the Las Vegas Aces.”

Desert Radiology has eight outpatient locations and serves 12 hospitals and is home to 70 radiologists and 400 support personnel throughout Southern Nevada. The Aces will become the second major professional sports team in Las Vegas, following the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights.
