HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Jan 23, 2013) - Dr. Eric Haas, a Houston colorectal surgeon, works with his team at Colorectal Surgical Associates to make early and accurate diagnoses while executing treatments aimed at quick recovery. Along with surgical partners Drs. Bartley Pickron and Ali Mahmood, Dr. Haas uses advanced methods to screen and treat conditions such as hemorrhoids, colon cancer, and Crohn's disease among others. Recently, Dr. Haas was listed as one of Houston's Top 300 Physicians for his expertise in colorectal care.

For its fifth edition of "Doctors' Choice," Health & Fitness Sports Magazine contacted over 3,000 physicians in Houston and the surrounding areas. These physicians were then invited to participate in a survey to determine the top physicians in 40 different specializations of healthcare. The confidential survey asked participants to choose medical professionals that they would recommend to their own family members and friends. In order to participate in the survey, the doctors were required to hold valid Texas medical licenses.

Dr. Haas is particularly honored as the nomination comes from his peers in the surgical community. He believes the recognition his practice will receive from the nomination reaffirms the importance of striving for best practices. In response to the nomination, the Houston colorectal surgeon says he plans to continue to provide the most advanced and innovative practices and techniques in Houston colorectal care in order to achieve the highest standards of patient care.

Ultimately, Dr. Haas' top priority is sound, quality patient care. From laparoscopic colon surgery to diverticulitis treatment, Dr. Haas says patients should always be sure to consult with a qualified and experienced colorectal surgeon in order to ensure they receive ethical treatment and the most effective results.
