    "Among people" isn't incorrect, but it's weird. Who else prefers a given doctor? Remove that phrase and number 3 is my favorite. Can you find a way to express the idea without repeating a noun?

    I'll take #2 or scratch "among people" in #'s 1 and 3.

    Perhaps:

    My doctor is one of the most highly regarded doctors in the area.

    I like Tarheel's version, and you can omit the second instance of "doctor" in it.

    Or you can change one of the doctor(s) to GPs, medics, or medical practitioners.
