Texas Monthly has again selected Irving cardiologist Dr. J. Douglas Overbeck as Super Doctor.
The Super Doctor list is published each December to recognize the top medical professionals across the state. The award is nothing new to the Tuscan Cardiovascular and Vein Center's top-ranked cardiologist, who has received the honor for the past 10 years and is now eligible for the Super Doctor Hall of Fame.
The selection process for the annual list is a detailed, multi-layered process aimed to identify and honor those who rank among the best in their medical specialty. The publication asks, “To whom would you refer a loved one or one of your patients for medical diagnosis and/or treatment?” Once the responses are tallied, the list is reviewed by an independent panel of accomplished physicians. Panelists make the final selections for the Super Doctor list.
Overbeck, who has been named to the list 10 times since 2005, founded the Tuscan Cardiovascular and Vein Center in Las Colinas and serves as the practice’s primary cardiologist. His vision for the practice is to provide complete cardiac care to patients, including preemptive cardiology, cardiac catheterization, coronary angioplasty and stenting, varicose vein treatment, and stress testing.
The highly sought-after Texas cardiologist graduated from Texas A&M, then went on to earn his medical degree at UT Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. Dr. Overbeck performed his residency at Vanderbilt University, and worked with experts at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas to complete his cardiology fellowship.
