142 Providers in 56 Categories Are Named to NYMag “Best Doctors”

New York Magazine's Annual Best Doctors ListingA total of 142 doctors were named to 2017’s New York MagazineBest Doctors” issue, up slightly over the prior year. A total of 142 physicians in 56 specialties were represented, up from 140 in 57 specialties in 2016, 128 doctors in 57 specialties in 2015, and 123 physicians and 55 specialties in 2014The ColumbiaDoctors honorees are listed below.

“We’d like to recognize and thank every one of the doctors who added to the prestige of our organization with their hard work and excellence in patient care, for which they are deservedly being recognized,” said George A. “Jack” Cioffi, MD, president of ColumbiaDoctors.

He added that physicians are encouraged to nominate their peers in this important annual listing. 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.

Nominate physicians whom you would recommend to a family member—not only because of their excellent training and clinical skills, but also because of the time, care, and concern they give their patients. Voting instructions are located on the ColumbiaDoctors intranet. Read more about the survey’s methodology here.
