July 2013

Atlanta magazine's 2103 Top Doctors

Atlanta magazine's July 2013 "Top Doctors" issue, an annual listing compiled by the New York-based research firm Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., included 17 faculty of the Department of Surgery of the Emory University School of Medicine. Congratulations to Timothy Buchman, Linda Cendales, Seth Force, Sheryl G. A. Gabram, John Galloway, Robert Guyton, T. Roderick Hester, Kirk Kanter, Stuart Knechtle, Albert Losken, Daniel Miller, Foad Nahai, Kenneth Newell, Charles Staley, John Sweeney, Collin Weber, and Mark Wulkan.

Nearly half of the physicians recognized in this year's "Top Doctors" issue are Emory Healthcare doctors, Emory Healthcare affiliated doctors, or Emory University School of Medicine faculty.

"With the addition of the Emory Healthcare Network (formally the Clinically Integrated Network) to our Emory Healthcare and Emory School of Medicine family, patients will be able to find both excellent physicians and superb health care closer to home," says John Fox, CEO and president of Emory Healthcare. "We thank and celebrate all of our physicians, and the care teams that work with them, for providing top notch care to our patients and their families."

The Emory Healthcare Network is a network of physicians and hospitals formed to improve care coordination among its members to enhance quality outcomes and manage costs more efficiently. It includes Emory-owned and jointly owned hospitals, Southern Regional Medical Center in Riverdale, and nearly 1,600 physicians (both Emory-employed physicians and physicians in private practice).

Castle Connolly uses a survey and research process involving tens of thousands of top doctors across America and the medical leadership of leading hospitals. Atlanta's top doctors were selected after peer nomination, extensive research, and careful review and screening by Castle Connolly's doctor-directed research team. Atlanta magazine uses the research by Castle Connolly to provide detailed information about education, training, and special expertise of Atlanta doctors.
