More than 100 Health Science Center Physicians Named ‘Best Doctors in America’
More than 100 physicians affiliated with University Hospital and the State University of New York Health Science Center at Syracuse are listed in the newest edition of “The Best Doctors in America,” the nation’s top guide on who provides the best medical care. The listing is contained in “The Best Doctors in America, 1999″ (Copyright 1998 by Woodward/White, Aiken, S.C).
To compile the current database, more than 30,000 doctors throughout the United States were asked to rate the clinical abilities of other doctors in their areas of specialization. Only those doctors who earned the consensus support of their peers were included and listings cannot be bought. For this reason, inclusion in “Best Doctors” is considered a singular honor.
Physicians are listed below by specialty. An asterisk, *, denotes physician is a clinical, or voluntary faculty member; others are full-time physicians at University Hospital.
