BID-Milton Physicians Named “Top Doctors” by Boston Magazine

Boston Magazine recently released its annual “Top Doctors” list, and 31 physicians on Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton’s Medical Staff were selected for the honor.

Boston Magazine’s Top Doctors list was compiled in partnership with Castle Connolly Medical, publishers of “America’s Top Doctors®” and other healthcare-related consumer guides. For the past 20 years Castle Connolly has surveyed physicians nationwide asking them to nominate other physicians who they felt were outstanding in their specialty. (A physician cannot nominate him/herself.)

A Castle Connolly physician-led research team then reviews all the nominations, including the physician’s medical education, training, academic appointments, and outcome data, if available, before finalizing the Top Doctors list nationally and regionally.

“We are delighted that 31 of the hospital’s physicians and surgeons are regarded so highly by other physicians that they are included in this prestigious list of top doctors in the region,” said Richard Fernandez, president and CEO of Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton. “When the hospital affiliated with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in 2012, we made a strategic decision to bring more specialist physicians to the hospital to partner with our long-standing and highly respected community-based physicians in order to provide more care locally. This list of top doctors shows that our efforts are succeeding.”
