Mount Sinai South Nassau Doctors Named to Castle Connolly’s 30th Anniversary Top Doctors Guide

Castle Connolly has named nine Mount Sinai South Nassau physicians to its 2023 30th Anniversary Top Doctors guide. Nationally, only 7 percent of more than 850,000 practicing doctors in the United States earned Castle Connolly “Top Doctors” designation this year.

The Mount Sinai South Nassau doctors along with their specialties included in this year’s guide are:

“I commend each of these tremendous physicians for this outstanding accomplishment,” said Adhi Sharma, MD, President of Mount Sinai South Nassau. “Their commitment to providing expert, patient-centered care does not go unrecognized by their peers as well as our nurses and advanced practice practitioners.”

According to Castle Connolly, the doctors are best-in-class health care providers, embodying excellence in clinical care as well as interpersonal skills. The doctors were peer-nominated and selected based on extensive research, careful review, and screening conducted by Castle Connolly’s physician-led research team.

The Top Doctors guide is a carefully curated list of more than 63,000 board certified U.S. physicians across all 50 states and all major specialties. Selected physicians specialize in more than 65 medical specialties and subspecialties for the care and treatment of more than 2,100 diseases and medical conditions.

Recent research, conducted by Castle Connolly in conjunction with Everyday Health, underscores the importance of finding a trusted doctor. The research found that 82 percent of consumers consider a doctor to be important in their life, far eclipsing other services, like accountants, lawyers, and even child care. Additionally, the research found that Black patients were more than twice as likely as white patients to say that finding a doctor who shares their race/ethnicity will lead to better health outcomes and will get them to be more compliant.
