18 MDs FROM STONY BROOK UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER INCLUDED IN NEW YORK MAGAZINE'S BEST DOCTORS ISSUE

6/17/2009


New York Magazine's 12th annual "Best Doctors in New York" issue features 18 full time and voluntary physicians from Stony Brook University Medical Center. Boasting a wide range of specialties, they were selected from more than 50,000 physicians in the Greater New York Metropolitan Area. The "Best Doctors" list approximately represents the top 3% of New York-area physicians. The issue hit newsstands on June 15, 2009.

The "Best Doctors" list is compiled by Castle Connolly Medical, LTD, a medical research and publishing company. The selection process is based on peer nominations, followed by telephone interviews with leading specialists, chiefs of service, and other hospital personnel. Criteria for selection include professional qualifications, communication skills, and reputation, among other factors. Castle Connolly specifically asked for the commendations of those to whom the nominator would refer their own patients and family members. Once the interviews were completed, the nomination pool was tabulated and a group of 6,000 doctors were chosen. The "best" 1,107 were then hand-picked from that list and featured in New York Magazine (see http://nymag.com/health/bestdoctors/2009/57180/ for complete methodology). "This is wonderful recognition from physician peers ," says Dr. Steven L. Strongwater, hospital CEO. "Our physicians make enormous contributions every day, and continuously work hard, along with our nurses and staff, to ensure that our patients receive high quality and compassionate care."
