Only 7 percent of U.S. doctors earned this honor, who from Mount Sinai South Nassau are among them?


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

“I commend each of these tremendous physicians for this outstanding accomplishment,” said Dr. Adhi Sharma, 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 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.
