Mount Sinai Tops the List in New York Magazine’s 2013 “Best Doctors” Issue
Date:6/18/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2013

New York magazine named 145 physicians from The Mount Sinai Medical Center to its “Best Doctors” list, up from 129 last year and more than any individual hospital in New York City. The new issue also lists 52 additional doctors who serve at hospitals within Mount Sinai’s affiliate network, which continues on a strategic growth trajectory. The “Best Doctors” issue, which this year features a total of 1,198 physicians, appears in the June 24 print issue and is available online at http://www.nymag.com/bestdoctors.

“America is on the cusp of dramatic change in the way we practice medicine, and Mount Sinai is at the forefront of that change through developing ways to manage costs without affecting the outstanding quality care our patients have come to associate with us,” said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, President and CEO of The Mount Sinai Medical Center. “Our commitment to innovative research and care has made Mount Sinai a magnet for some of the world’s best clinicians, a reality that is reflected in our distinguished results on the Best Doctors list.”

Mount Sinai physicians are featured in 50 of the 64 specialties reviewed in the magazine, including cardiac electrophysiology, cardiovascular disease, gastroenterology, geriatric medicine, medical oncology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, otolaryngology, pediatrics, psychiatry, surgery, thoracic and cardiac surgery, vascular surgery and urology.

Castle Connolly Medical Ltd, a New York City research and information firm, determines the rankings based on a regional peer-review survey that asks thousands of licensed physicians to nominate the physicians who, in their judgment, are the best in their field and related fields.

Castle Connolly tabulates the results, vets the nominee pool, and selects the top 10 percent of the region’s physicians to be published in its annual guidebook,Top Doctors: New York Metro Area. For the past 16 years, Castle Connolly has been providing New York with a shorter version of this list for publication in the magazine.
