Another Strong Showing for NewYork-Presbyterian on New York Magazine's Annual 'Best Doctors' List

NY Mag Best Hospitals 2014

In the latest New York Magazine "Best Doctors" issue, published June 9, 2014, 215 physicians from NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital have been recognized as among the top doctors in the New York metropolitan region

"New Yorkers are fortunate to have some of the nation's best physician's right in their backyard," says Dr. Steven J. Corwin, CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. "We are thrilled to have so many of our doctors listed in New York magazine, as it reinforces what is most important to us - providing the highest-quality, most compassionate care. We thank all of our doctors for helping to make a difference in the lives of our patients and families every day."

Physicians listed on New York's 17th annual "Best Doctors" list were selected through a peer-nomination process. New York magazine compiles its "Best Doctors" list using Castle Connolly's book, Top Doctors: New York Metro Area, adjusting for factors including geographic balance to better reflect the magazine's readership.
