  • When faced with the task of finding a physician renowned for first-rate care, many turn to New York Magazine's "Best Doctors" list as a reliable source of information.

    This year, nine of Winthrop's physicians were named to the magazine's 2007 "Best Doctors" list, which includes 1,439 physicians in 61 different specialities from Long Island, the five boroughs and several surrounding counties.

    The Winthrop physicians on this year's list include: Eva Chalas, MD, Chief, Gynecological Oncology; Burke A. Cunha, MD, Chief, Division of Infectious Disease; Abraham Green, MD, Pediatrics; Dorie Hankin, MD, Pediatrics; George Hines, MD, Chief, Division of Vascular Surgery; Leonard Krilov, MD, Chief, Division of Pediatric Infectious Disease; Lucy Macina, MD, Geriatric Medicine; Michael Niederman, MD, Chairman, Department of Medicine; and Mark Weinblatt, MD, Chief, Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology.

    In addition, four of these specialists - Drs. Chalas, Cunha, Krilov and Niederman - are named in the current edition of America's Top Doctors, a guide to the top one percent of specialists in more than 60 medical specialities and subspecialities nationwide. What's more, several Winthrop physicians have been included in Castle Connolly Medical Ltd.'s prestigious Top Doctors: New York Metro Area guidebook.

    "On behalf of Winthrop-University Hospital and all of the fine physicians, who are a part of the Winthrop Team, I congratulate these specialists for their achievements and for being named to this year's 'Best Doctors' list," said Daniel P. Walsh, President and CEO of Winthrop. "This prestigious distinction is a reflection of the Hospital's ongoing commitment to providing attentive and sophisticated medical care in a welcoming and world-class environment."

    New York Magazine's tenth annual "Best Doctors" list results from a collaboration between the publication and Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a New York City research and information company. Each year, thousands of physicians in the New York metropolitan area complete a peer-review survey in which they are asked to nominate doctors in almost every specialty - those to whom they would refer their own patients and family members. They are also asked to consider the nominees' professional qualifications, reputations and patient communication skills. Castle Connolly then refines the list based on hundreds of interviews with leading specialists, chiefs of service and other hospital personnel.
