RCTX’s Hall of Fame Super Docs
For the past 20 years, Super Doctors® has been honoring the top doctors in Texas. When a doctor has been selected as a “Super Doc” for 15 years or more, they join an exclusive club of elite doctors known as the “Hall of Fame.” An incredible honor to receive, entering the “Hall of Fame” Super Doctor circle serves as a symbol of a doctor’s ability to provide advanced, patient-centered care within their chosen field of medicine.
At Retina Consultants of Texas, we have always been immensely proud to have several “Super Docs” in our roster of retina specialists and surgeons. We are now extra proud to announce that two of our doctors – Dr. Calvin E. Mein in San Antonio and Dr. Tien P. Wong in Houston – have both achieved “Hall of Fame” status. Dr. Mein has been recognized as a Super Doc for 18 years since 2005, while Dr. Wong has been recognized as a Super Doc for 15 years since 2008.
