R5 Our Best Doctors 2006

  Physicians select our top 160 MDs

“Best” typically is a matter of opinion. And when it comes to something simple—like the county’s “best” pies—well, we all feel entitled to sit in judgment. And here at Westchester Magazine, where we’ve got lots of opinionated and well-informed people on staff, we don’t lack for input. But when it comes to choosing a doctor, the qualities that distinguish the “best” from the merely excellent are a lot harder to discern. That’s why we rely on Castle Connolly Medical Ltd’s physician-led team of researchers to help us fairly and accurately find the top doctors. The New York-based research and information company has a rigorous screening process that it uses both regionally and nationally. Using mail and telephone surveys and electronic ballots, Castle Connolly asks doctors and the medical leadership of leading hospitals to name highly skilled, exceptional doctors. In other words, the best. Before Castle Connolly makes its final selection of these candidates, it screens the doctors’ educational and professional experience. Then, we publish the results. (You can also see them online at www.castleconnolly.com or in one of Castle Connolly’s national guides, such as America’s Top Doctor or America’s Top Doctors for Cancer.)

Finally, if your own favorite doctor doesn’t appear on the list, it doesn’t mean that he or she isn’t a wonderful physician. Indeed, several of the doctors profiled here are not on the list, but are top-notch physicians. In Westchester, we’re lucky to have the best of everything and the medical community is no exception. And although this guide is as comprehensive and reliable as any we can furnish, Castle Connolly doesn’t have the last word. Ultimately, you choose the “best” doctor by putting your health in his or her hands.

“The baby died and came back to life”

The Medical Situation: Baby born hemorrhaging and, as a result, has no pulse and no blood in her system. Many organs shut down. Doctor: Neonatologist Jesus Jaile-Marti Patient: A newborn whose parents requested anonymity

By all accounts, this was an unremarkable full-term second pregnancy. The mom was healthy. The baby’s vital signs seemed normal. Labor, all assumed, would go smoothly. And it did—for the first few hours. But then, just as the baby’s head began to emerge, blood—lots of it—flooded the scene. Blood gushed out as the seven-pound baby was born, her blood pressure plummeting to zero.

At that moment, Dr. Jesus Jaile-Marti, chief of neonatology and newborn services at White Plains Hospital Center, happened to be standing just outside the door of the birthing room. “We need you,” he recalls hearing nurses yelling. “We need you now!” Dr. Jaile-Marti rushed in. It didn’t take him long to know what was wrong—nor how profoundly serious the situation was. The baby, Dr. Jaile-Marti understood, had ruptured blood vessels in the placenta that had formed over her mom’s cervix. “It’s like opening up a spigot,” he says. “The baby lost all her blood. Her heart tried to pump but there was nothing there—no blood, no oxygen. The baby went into an acute state of shock—she was as white as a linen sheet. It was as bad as being in a major car crash and bleeding quickly to death.”

Dr. Jaile-Marti swiftly inserted a tube into the tiny girl’s windpipe to get oxygen to her lungs. Another doctor gently pumped her heart, as saline solution was being pumped into her veins just to keep something in them. Someone else sprinted to the blood bank to grab the units of special O-negative blood that is always kept on hand for neonates—there was no time to type her blood.

Finally, her blood pressure returned. “That all happened in five minutes,” Dr. Jaile-Marti says, “but we felt like we’d been working on this baby for hours.”

Put on a respirator, the tiny patient was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) when, at just seven minutes of life, her heart rate plummeted and again she went into cardiac arrest. “We were doing chest compressions,” Dr. Jaile-Marti says, “and giving her adrenalin to keep her heart going and dopamine to support her heart and blood pressure.” Thirteen minutes later, the baby stiffened; a seizure had taken hold of her. To stop the seizures, phenobarbital was quickly pumped into her system. “This was not a case of one isolated organ but many complications. Over the next twenty-four hours, she was in severe respiratory failure.” Then her kidneys completely shut down. “She didn’t urinate for three days,” the doctor reports.

The newborn’s room was filled with doctors, nurses, technicians, and all sorts of medical equipment: one to scan her brain, another to check her heart, still another to monitor her kidneys. By day three, much to the staff’s relief, her condition began to improve; her kidneys were beginning to function, her blood pressure stabilized. Everything was going in the right direction when, seemingly out of the blue, her abdomen became severely distended; inexplicably her small intestine had ruptured. She was rushed into surgery. It took 10 days before Dr. Jaile-Marti felt fairly confident that the infant would be okay. On day 18, the pint-sized baby went home with her immensely relieved and profoundly grateful parents, who are still so shaken by their close call that they couldn’t talk to us for this story. Today, she is a “beautiful, healthy three-year-old,” Dr. Jaile-Marti happily reports.

“Her survival rate should have been close to zero,” Dr. Jaile-Marti says. “This baby literally died and came back to life. I have only seen three cases this severe in all my years of practice. What a wonderful miracle she is.”

“No one could guarantee that I would ever sing again.”  

The Medical Situation: Woman loses her voice Doctor: Laryngologist Craig Zalvan Patient: Maria Calfa-DePaul

Maria Calfa-DePaul loved to sing—in the shower, to her two sons before bedtime, to residents of the nursing home where she worked part-time as a “wandering minstrel.” But in 1997, she started to lose her voice. In the ensuing years, she visited two different physicians, but neither was able to help her. “They would suggest surgery, but when I asked them if I would be able to sing afterward, they couldn’t guarantee it,” she says. By the summer of last year, Calfa-DePaul could barely speak, let alone sing. “It kept getting worse. I could reach only low tones. If I tried a high note, all there was was air. I used to worry that if I was ever attacked, I wouldn’t be able to scream.”

Her son’s pediatrician suggested she see laryngologist Dr. Craig Zalvan, one of only about 50 doctors nationwide who specialize in voice and swallowing disorders. To determine what was wrong with Calfa-DePaul, Dr. Zalvan inserted down her throat a scope with a digital camera (a laryngeal videostroboscopy), which sent images of her vocal cords to a computer screen. “I could see exactly what was wrong,” Dr. Zalvan says. “I could see a cyst on her vocal cords. I knew right away that this was a surgical issue.” Again, Calfa-DePaul wanted to know, would she be able to sing again? “He told me I had to follow his directions exactly to ensure that I would,” Calfa-DePaul says. She was told to cut out caffeine, stop snacking before bedtime, and take Nexium to reduce acid reflux pre-surgery. Most important, she was told not to utter a single word for two to three weeks post-surgery. “When I woke up from the surgery, there was a note on my pillow: ‘Do Not Talk.’”

Over the next month, Calfa-DePaul wrote on white boards to communicate. Then it was time, finally, to find out if the surgery worked.

She sat nervously in Dr. Zalvan’s office. He first examined her—then asked her to hum. “He had me mimic him; it was a mid-modal range.” And to Calfa-DePaul’s delight, she could. “I got chills—I hadn’t been able to reach that note for years.”

For the next five months, she underwent speech therapy with therapist Leah Ross-Kugler, who was a former opera singer. She still goes once a month. “Dr. Zalvan gave me my voice back and Leah has taught me how to keep it!”

She adds: “When something you love gets taken away, the sadness is unreal. For eight years I thought I would never be able to sing again. Now I can and the joy is immeasurable.”

A resident of Suffern, New York, and a working mom, Calfa-DePaul has produced her first album (you can hear her songs at www.mcd-music.com), and sings in restaurants and coffee shops in the area. Her CD, Moments of Happiness, was released October 25. “Dr. Zalvan not only gave me my voice back, he gave me back my life,” says Calfa-DePaul.

“There was nothing between the shoulder and the elbow.”

The Medical Situation: Man smashes arm in accident Doctors: Orthopaedic Trauma Specialist David Asprinio and Microvascular Hand Surgeon Richard M. Magill Patient: Angel Badillo

Twenty-six-year old Angel Badillo is one lucky guy. After his arm was smashed in a motorcycle accident, amputation or severe disability seemed inevitable. The damage was massive—he had lost about six inches of the humerus bone in his upper arm. “When you looked at the X-ray, it was obvious that there was nothing between the shoulder and the elbow,” says Dr. David Asprinio, an orthopaedic trauma specialist and director of the orthopaedics department at the Westchester Medical Center. “There was a big chunk of bone missing.” But since Badillo’s nerves were working well, Dr. Asprinio decided to try a less conventional technique in order to save the arm. “We cut out a piece of his fibula, the calf bone in the lower leg, to replace the humerus.” Dr. Richard Magill, a microvascular hand surgeon, used microscopic techniques to reattach the blood vessels to help keep the bone alive. Then, Dr. Aspirino packed the transplanted bone with the patient’s own marrow and implanted metal plates to stabilize the bone so Badillo could begin rehabilitation to regain motion and build muscle mass. While he may never regain 100 percent of the function in his arm, after four months, Badillo is healing well.

“It isn’t natural for a child to be born without an ear” 

The Medical Situation: A young boy is born missing most of his left ear The Doctor: Pediatric plastic surgeon Tae Ho Kim The Patient: Frank Bukovsky

Six-year-old Frank Bukovsky was born missing the bulk of his left ear; he had only the earlobe. Although he seemed to accept that he was different from other kids, his parents worried that his hearing (that one ear didn’t work at all) wouldn’t be his biggest problem.

“Frankie’s father and I knew how cruel kids could be once they got older,” says his mother, Rosann Jeffcoat. “I told his teachers that he was born like this and though, the kids in his class asked a lot of questions, fortunately, they didn’t tease him.”

However strangers would stare at the youngster out in the park, the mall, the street, or worse, Jeffcoat says, make inappropriate comments like, “Oh look, he only has one ear.” Dr. Tae Ho Kim, a pediatric plastic surgeon and chief of plastic and cranial-facial surgery at Westchester Medical Center, knows how psychologically painful a birth deformity can be and that reconstructive sugery can sometimes be a wonderful antidote. “It isn’t natural for a child to be born without an ear,” says Dr. Kim. “Reconstructive surgery is not cosmetic surgery.”

Traditionally, to create an ear where one doesn’t exist, a doctor would use rib cartilage—cartilage that can’t be harvested until a child reaches around age seven. And the traditional process requires four to five surgeries. Believing there was no other choice, Frankie’s mother was considering having her son undergo cartilage surgery. Then she met Dr. Kim who told her about a new technique that he had studied at Los Angeles Children’s Hospital during his pediatric cranial-facial fellowship. The new way, Dr. Kim explained, doesn’t require any harvesting; it makes use of a plastic implant. “The difference between the rib and the plastic implant is like night and day,” Dr. Kim says. And, while he concedes that the rib technique is “better than not doing anything at all,” he notes that it is “just cartilage under a pocket of skin. The new ear lies flat against the head; one can’t even wear glasses.”

Reconstructing an ear using the implant is, he says, almost like creating a sculpture. The plastic implant acts as the framework. Taking tissue from under the patient’s scalp, the doctor molds it over the implant and skin grafts are then sculpted on to give the ear a natural appearance. Jeffcoat decided to have her son undergo this new technique. She is glad she did. “Frankie loves his new ear,” she reports, “and thanks us for it every day. It looks completely natural. And since he can hear perfectly out of his right ear, he shouldn’t have any problems in the future. Dr. Kim,” she declares, “has hands of gold.” 

“My Mom couldn’t speak and couldn’t walk”

The Medical Situation: Woman’s stroke robs her of her ability to walk, talk, and feed herself. Doctor: Neurologist and internist Meheroz H. Rabadi Patient: Alice Schneider

Ninety-one-year-old Alice Schneider of Croton-on-Hudson lived alone in a homey one-bedroom apartment, decorated with her collection of Hummel figurines and dozens of family photographs, at Springvale Inn, an assisted-living facility. She took care of herself; cooked her own breakfast; made her bed each morning; enjoyed her book club, the concerts, and other activities sponsored by Springvale Inn; socialized with friends in her building; and corresponded regularly with her two daughters and three grandchildren. Then, on the morning of February 27, 2006, the housekeeper came to do the weekly cleaning. Usually, Schneider left the door ajar for her, but this time the door was locked, so the housekeeper using her own key, let herself in. To her horror, she found Schneider lying on the bathroom floor.

An ambulance rushed her to Phelps Memorial Hospital Center in Sleepy Hollow where doctors diagnosed a heart attack and a stroke. Over the next eight days, she was cared for at Phelps Memorial and, though fortunately, it was clear she would survive, it was also clear she would need rehabilitation. “My mom had no use of her right side,” her 64-year-old daughter, Adele Dowell, says. “She couldn’t speak, couldn’t walk, couldn’t even feed herself. I was so afraid she would end up living out her life in a bed, not able to walk or talk.”

The doctors at Phelps recommended The Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, but warned that it might be difficult to get in. “They told me I would need to find someone to help me get my mother in.” She emailed Dr. Meheroz H. Rabadi, the co-director of the stroke rehabilitation unit at Burke—and, much to her surprise and delight, she heard back “within the hour,” she says. “I almost fell off my chair.” Her mother was accepted.

At Burke, every day for three and a half weeks, Schneider worked with speech, physical, and occupational therapists for three to five hours a day. She practiced standing up and getting out of her wheelchair. She “danced” with the physical therapist, her arms on his shoulders, his hands around her waist. She relearned how to use utensils to feed herself. At the end of March, she left Burke and moved into the Bethel Nursing Home, where she received additional rehabilitation with Burke employees over the next two months.

Today, Schneider is back at home and gets along just fine with a walker. A full-time aide is helping her as she continues to regain her strength. She can walk, feed herself, and talk, nearly as well as she did before the stroke. “The change is truly amazing,” Dowell says. “And every day she’s a little perkier.” The family just celebrated her 92nd birthday.

“We’re afraid something very bad could happen”

The Medical Situation: Seemingly healthy, robust man has major heart attack that nearly kills him Doctor: Cardiologist Warren Rosenblum Patient: Ralph Stein

Ralph D. Stein, 63, was one active guy. A full-time law professor at Pace University, Stein had put in long, sometimes 20-hour, days. A fan of the arts, he attended concerts a couple times a week and belonged to three film societies. “I don’t like to sleep,” he declares. So when one day in December, 2005, he felt a bit dizzy and couldn’t eat, he paid it no attention. A touch of the flu, he thought. Besides, he happened to have a doctor’s appointment scheduled the following morning; stitches on his foot from an earlier operation were scheduled to be removed.

The next day, in the doctor’s examining room, Stein mysteriously crashed to the floor. A rescue squad whisked him off to Phelps Memorial Hospital Center; at the time, it was thought he had had a mild heart attack. A Phelps cardiologist clearly thought otherwise. “If you stay here,” he recalls the cardiologist saying, “we’re afraid something very bad could happen. I’ve called an ambulance.”

Stein was rushed to Westchester Medical Center, the region’s level-one trauma center—and sent straight to the cardio catheterization lab where it was discovered that his right coronary artery was almost completely blocked by a clot. Stein was now in shock and his heart rate was dangerously low. A team of doctors worked feverishly to remove the blockage. They first inserted a balloon catheter to open his artery then placed metal stents. Still Stein was in grave danger. Dr. Warren Rosenblum, director of Heart Failure and the Heart Transplant Program at the Westchester Medical Center, was called in. “We didn’t think he would survive,” Dr. Rosenblum recalls.

The stents and balloon pump were not going to be enough to save Stein. His heart was so weak it could not pump. What he needed was a right ventricular-assist device (VAD), an apparatus that acts like a mechanical heart, taking over the pumping needs of the right side of the heart, and giving the damaged part of the heart time to recover. “Westchester Medical Center has the only VAD between New York City and Albany,” Dr. Rosenblum says. “Without it, he would have died.” A team of surgeons surgically implanted the VAD.

“It was that or nothing,” Stein says. “I was in a coma for ten days, but was semi-conscious. I had a continual delusion that the monitor opposite me was a juice dispenser and there was a plot to keep me from getting any juice.”

For the next two weeks, this formerly indefatigable man was so weak he couldn’t even hold a paperback book. After an additional four weeks, however, he walked out of the hospital. Today, Stein is back to work teaching, once again giving his students and friends historical walking tours of New York City, attending the opera, and enjoying life.
