Sheba Heads the 2020 Forbes List of the Best Doctors in Israel

the best doctors in israel
For the last seven years, Forbes has annually listed the best doctors in Israel based on recommendations from medical professionals from across the country. In 2020, Sheba leads the list once again – with 197 specialist physicians.

Sheba’s distinction of leading the 2020 Forbes List of Best Doctors in Israel takes a place of pride alongside the medical center’s inclusion in Newsweek’s prestigious Top 10 Hospitals in the World, for the second year running.

To reduce the potential for bias when compiling the Forbes list, physicians in Israel were instructed to recommend colleagues from their field, but not from the same subspecialty. Additionally, recommendations provided by a doctor about another doctor who works in a different institution were regarded with greater significance than recommendations provided by a doctor at the same institution.

Deserving special mention at Sheba Medical Center are the outstanding physicians from seven internal medicine departments who are achieving tremendous accomplishments, despite the overwhelming workload caused by the novel coronavirus. Sheba’s infectious disease experts have been working day and night in the war against COVID-19.

In particular, Sheba’s doctors consistently stand out in the fields of pregnancy, childbirth and fertility. Additionally, the hospital’s rehabilitation and psychiatric teams deserve citation for providing top tier care on par with specialized national centers. This year, a long list of exceptional surgeons was also featured; at Sheba, patients are entitled to choose a specific surgeon, free of charge.

The Forbes list features 1,248 physicians from approximately two dozen major hospitals in Israel, and Sheba Medical Center ranks in top place for the highest number of best doctors in more than 40% of specialties. These fields of medicine include:

  • Surgery
  • Cardiothoracic Surgery
  • Cardiology
  • Gynecology
  • Obstetrics and Fertility
  • Rehabilitation
  • Urology
  • Endocrinology – Diabetes
  • Internal Medicine
  • Ophthalmology
  • Psychiatry
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Genetics
  • Rheumatology
  • Children – Intensive Care and Neonatology
