Dr. Thomas Roshek and Dr. Chad Carlton Named D Magazine's "Best Doctors" of Collin CountyPlano, TX, April 21, 2017 – The Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery is proud to announce that two of its surgeons have been named among D Magazine’s Best Doctors in Collin County for 2017. Dr. Thomas Roshek and Dr. Chad Carlton were recently notified that voters in D Magazine’s 2017 Best Doctors program had selected them for inclusion on this year’s list.

“Earning recognition in D Magazine’s Best Doctors program is a tremendous honor,” explains Dr. Nick Nicholson, founder and lead surgeon at the Nicholson Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery. “The rigorous selection process begins with peer nomination and ends with online voting, which makes attaining the honor quite humbling. The outcome speaks volumes about Dr. Carlton and Dr. Roshek’s dedication to providing patients with the best possible outcomes.”

D Magazine’s annual Best Doctors ranking kicks off each year with a confidential poll that is sent to local doctors in general practice and specialty fields. The doctors are asked to nominate two others in each specialty field they would be willing to send their own patients or loved ones to for care. Once an initial list is cultivated and vetted, an online polling phase kicks off so doctors not included in the initial poll may also vote.

“Understanding that doctors are often the most particular critics of themselves and others in practice makes recognition in D Magazine’s Best Doctors rankings quite a compliment,” say Drs. Roshek and Carlton. “It is an honor to know peers place such a high level of trust in the care we provide at the Nicholson Clinic.”

Dr. Thomas Roshek has been with the Nicholson Clinic for more than seven years. He specializes in weight-loss surgery, abdominal wall hernias and abdominal wall reconstruction. He is also dedicated to teaching others how to perform bariatric surgery.

Dr. Chad Carlton is considered a leading laparoscopic weight loss surgeon. His affiliation with the Nicholson Clinic began more than four years ago. Dr. Carlton’s uncompromising dedication to working directly with patients to help them achieve success has made him a standout practitioner in the field of bariatric surgery.

The Nicholson Clinic specializes in weight loss surgery while providing patients ongoing support to help them achieve and maintain their weight loss goals. To find out more about the clinic or its doctors, visit it online at
