The selection of these thirteen physicians to the 2022 Top Doctors: New York Metro Area listing confirms a tradition of clinical, and patient-centered excellence at NSPC.”

More about Castle Connolly…

Castle Connolly Top Doctors are peer-nominated by clinically-active, licensed MDs and DOs, and each nomination is thoroughly reviewed by a robust and completely unbiased research process.

Each year, Castle Connolly surveys physicians and other healthcare leaders around the country are asked to identify doctors that embody excellence in clinical care as well as interpersonal skills such as listening and communicating, demonstrating empathy and instilling trust and confidence in patients.

In addition to mail and online surveys, the Castle Connolly team makes thousands of phone calls each year, talking with leading specialists, chairs of clinical departments and vice presidents of medical affairs, seeking to verify these top specialists for all major conditions and procedures.

Every year, Castle Connolly surveys tens of thousands of practicing physicians across the US by email and mail to ensure our list always reflects the latest in quality care. After a doctor is nominated, our physician-led research team begins their work to screen each doctor and confirm whether he or she meets Castle Connolly standards.

Castle Connolly evaluates several criteria when selecting Top Doctors, including professional qualifications, education, hospital and faculty appointments, research leadership, professional reputation and disciplinary history. Where available, we include outcomes data in our research. We also ask doctors in our survey to consider not only the training and clinical skills of the physicians they nominate, but also interpersonal skills such as listening and communicating effectively, demonstrating empathy, and instilling trust and confidence.
