Top Doctors 2007

 

The top 164 doctors in 49 specialties.

 

Each year for the past six years we have published a list of the very best doctors in our county. How do we do it? How do we determine who among Westchester’s 1,920 liscensed doctors is best? We don’t. We turn to the experts—Castle Connolly, a healthcare research and information company. Its physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Using mail and telephone surveys, and electronic ballots, Castle Connolly asks physicians  and  leading hospital administrators and other medical officials to identify highly skilled, exceptional doctors. It carefully screens the doctors’ educational and professional experience before making its final selection of those most highly regarded by their peers. Here are the cream of Westchester’s medical crop.
