Stella Hecker, Class ‘93 of De La Salle Health Sciences Institute’s College of Medicine, was named to the 2012 Top Doctors in Forth Worth Texas by a leading magazine from the state. Hecker is an endocrinologist, a doctor who treats glandular and hormonal problems, such as diabetes and thyroid disorders.


For its Top Doctors search, Fort Worth Texas magazine sent more than 4,500 local physicians a survey, asking to voluntarily rate co-doctors and name the best doctors in Tarrant County. Medical professionals willing to participate went online to cast their votes. While Fort Worth, Texas magazine provided the fields of specialty, the physicians identified the professionals they regard as being leaders in those fields. The final results were submitted to a selected panel of physicians for review.
