Each year, medical professionals in Phoenix nominate doctors from specified medical specialties to be submitted for the distinction as a "super doctor."

Doctors are asked to submit their nominees based on one question: "If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?"

This year, more than 8,600 Phoenix doctors were surveyed and one of the winning selectees was Dr. Marc Manger, diagnostic radiologist at the Phoenix VA Health Care System (Phoenix VAHCS).

Manger did his undergraduate work at Yale, medical school at Tufts, and radiology residency at UCLA. For his fellowship he trained in both CT/ultrasound and in MRI. He also became board-certified in cardiovascular CT angiography.

Manger is a resident of Phoenix and was recruited five years ago to start the Phoenix VAHCS's first MRI Service. A former Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar at the UCLA Schools of Medicine and Public Health, Manger has special interests in cross sectional imaging and in quality and process improvement challenges in diagnostic imaging. He is an invited guest speaker at the American College of Radiology's February 2012 national conference on "Maximizing Value in Radiology through Quality and Safety Improvements." He is married to Linda Sirois, RN, who works with Allergy Immunological Associates in Scottsdale.

The "super doctors" research team evaluates prospective candidates on 10 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.
