54 Yale New Haven Hospital physicians named to New York magazine's Best Doctors list

6/8/2011 — New York magazine recently named 54 physicians at Yale New Haven Hospital among the best in the New York metropolitan area in its 14th annual "Best Doctors" issue. The YNHH doctors were selected from more than 6,000 physicians in the greater New York area. Forty-nine of the physicians are members of the Yale Medical Group.

Spanning 63 specialties, these are the physicians that physicians recommend. Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a research and information company sends nomination forms to 12,000 physicians in New York City, Westchester County, Long Island and portions of New Jersey and Connecticut. Castle Connolly asks them to take into account professional qualifications, such as education, residency, board certification, reputation, etc., and patient care skills, such as listening and communication, empathy and instilling trust and confidence.

After tabulating the results, Castle Connolly publishes a guidebook, Top Doctors: New York Metro Area, which includes 1,144 top-ranked doctors. New York magazine publishes a shorter version, designed to offer geographic balance for the magazine's readership and a broad specialty representation.
