The magazine’s 15th annual issue recognizes more cancer physicians from Memorial Sloan Kettering than any other hospital.
Memorial Sloan Kettering physicians, with specialties ranging from pathology and surgery to radiation oncology and psychiatry, are once again listed among the best doctors in the New York metro area, according to New York Magazine’s June 11 “Best Doctors” issue.
The selections were based on the annual guidebook Top Doctors: New York Metro Area published by the research and information company Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., which lists what it has determined to be the top 10 percent of the region’s physicians.
For the past 15 years, Castle Connolly has been providing New York Magazine with a shorter version of this list for the magazine’s “Best Doctors” issue. As in years past, the magazine recognized more cancer physicians from Memorial Sloan Kettering than any other hospital.
A total of 156 Memorial Sloan Kettering doctors – whose sole focus is cancer – are featured in more than half of the 63 specialties in Top Doctors: New York Metro Area.
