  • Einstein Healthcare Network Announces Recognition of 34 Top Doctors

    Published: 04/29/2013

     Einstein Healthcare Network has surpassed its record in the May 2013 issue of Philadelphia magazine with 34 physicians selected as Top Doctors (exceeding 31 Top Docs in 2012). Recognized for their clinical excellence, the Einstein doctors represent a broad range of clinical areas, including: orthopedic surgery, radiation oncology, maternal and fetal medicine, interventional cardiology, surgery, clinical genetics, diagnostic radiology, internal medicine, and others.

    This group affirms the reputation of Einstein doctors for providing quality care and continues a long tradition of the network’s doctors earning this honor.

    Each year, Philadelphia magazine teams with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a well-known healthcare research and information company and surveys the region’s physicians, asking them to identify other doctors who are highly skilled caregivers. Castle Connolly then reviews the information along with the doctors’ educational and professional experience before final selections are made.

    “It’s gratifying to see that the number of our physicians recognized by their peers grows each year,” says Barry R. Freedman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Einstein Healthcare Network. “Congratulations to our doctors, nurses and entire workforce for the quality care they deliver and the exemplary job they do each day. This recognition is well-deserved.”
