Albuquerque, N.M. — It may seem like a great doctor is hard to come by. According to the 2015 Albuquerque the Magazine Top Docs Awards, however, many of Albuquerque’s top physicians can be found nearby at one of Optum’ 18 locations.


Thousands of physicians throughout Albuquerque were asked, “If you had to refer a loved one to a local doctor other than yourself, to whom would you refer them?” Optum is proud to be the recipient of seven Top Docs winners.


Optum 2015 Top Docs:

  • Dr.  John Doggett, Sleep Medicine
  • Dr. Jeremy Gleeson, Endocrinology
  • Dr. John Good, Pediatrics
  • Dr. Jeffrey Morehouse, Plastic Surgery
  • Dr. Joel Teicher, OB/GYN
  • Dr. Ryan Tyner, Bariatrics Surgery
  • Dr. Lance Wilson, Emergency Medicine

We proudly congratulate each of these doctors. Please visit or call 262-7000 to schedule an appointment with these and other top-notch doctors at Optum.
