    Published: 02/27/2014

    Sixteen physicians from Einstein Healthcare Network were selected as America’s Top Doctors® in the Castle Connolly Guide published in January 2014. The Top Doctors selection process identifies outstanding, highly-skilled physicians throughout the country, recognized as among the best in their specialties. The Guide is intended to help consumers/patients find the very best specialists to meet their needs.

    Recognized for their clinical excellence, the group of Einstein doctors represent a broad range of specialties, including: medical oncology, radiation oncology, maternal and fetal medicine, bariatric surgery, diagnostic radiology, neurological surgery, gastroenterology, and others.

    Each year, Castle Connolly, a well-known healthcare research and information company, surveys thousands of physicians and other healthcare professionals and asks them to identify excellent doctors in every specialty in their region and throughout the nation. The Castle Connolly physician-led research team also makes thousands of phone calls to leading specialists to identify top specialists for every disease and procedure. Final selections for inclusion in the Guide are based on a review of each doctor’s credentials, including medical education, training, hospital appointments, administrative posts, and professional achievements.

    “It’s wonderful to see physicians representing so many specialties from across Einstein Healthcare Network earn this national acknowledgement from their peers,” says Barry R.
