6/22/2007


Annual Issue Identifies “Best” as Selected by Peers

New York Magazine's annual "Best Doctors in New York" issue features 23 physicians in a wide range of specialties from Stony Brook University Medical Center. They were selected from more than 50,000 physicians in the Greater New York Metropolitan Area. The June 18 issue hits newsstands this week. -- Website: http://nymag.com/bestdoctors/index.htm.

The "Best Doctors" list is a collaboration of the magazine and Castle Connolly Medical, the research and publishing company. The selection process is based on questionnaires sent to 16,000 top physicians in the New York area. The Castle Connolly staff conducts hundreds of telephone interviews with leading specialists, chiefs of service, and other hospital personnel. Criteria for selection include training, clinical skills, interpersonal skills, education, residency, board certification, professional reputation, and other factors.

"We are very proud that our physicians have earned this recognition from their peers," said Richard N. Fine, M.D., Dean, Stony Brook University School of Medicine. "Our patients and physicians at other institutions have been aware of the outstanding care we provide in a broad range of specialty areas, such as surgery, cardiology, cancer, neurology, pediatrics and neonatology. As the only academic medical center on Long Island, we have access to cutting edge research and innovative techniques developed in the University’s School of Medicine that help us play a leadership role in health care and in the region."

The physicians from Stony Brook who were selected as "the best" include in alphabetical order:

Stony Brook University Medical Center is the only academic medical center on Long Island. It comprises Stony Brook University School of Medicine and Stony Brook University Hospital, which is the only tertiary care hospital and Level 1 Trauma Center in Suffolk County.
