New York, NY
 – July 16, 2010 /Press Release/  –– 

New York Magazine’s annual "Best Doctors" issue lists 178 Mount Sinai faculty and staff, including those who serve at an affiliated institution. "Best Doctors" appeared in the June 14th issue of the magazine.

In 2010, the magazine featured 1,119 physicians in the "Best Doctor’s" list. Excluding affiliates, 123 of Mount Sinai’s ranking physicians serve at The Mount Sinai Medical Center, including two that serve at Mount Sinai Queens.

Mount Sinai is distinguished not only by the number of physicians included in the annual list, but also by the fact that many of Mount Sinai’s physicians are featured across the multiple specialties reviewed, including cardiac electrophysiology, cardiovascular disease, child and adolescent psychiatry, dermatology, gastroenterology, geriatric medicine, gynecologic oncology, neurology, neuroradiology, occupational medicine, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngology, pediatrics, psychiatry, rehabilitation medicine, surgery, and urology.

Castle Connolly, a New York City research and information firm, determines the rankings based on a peer-review survey that asks 12,000 medical professionals 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 13 years, Castle Connolly has been providing New York with a shorter version of this list for publication in the magazine.
