When it comes to your healthcare, word-of-mouth recommendations can be helpful — but they’re just not enough. After all, what makes one physician “better” than another? Is it bedside manner? Years of experience? Education? Credentials? Here, in Westchester Magazine’s annual list of the county’s Top Doctors, the physicians included have been selected based on a strict set of criteria, including input from some of the toughest critics of all: other doctors.
This year, we present 672 physicians in 63 specialties ranging from addiction psychiatry to vascular surgery. As in years past, we’ve relied on Castle Connolly, which utilizes a rigorous screening and selection process, to provide us with a comprehensive list of the best physicians in Westchester.
To give you a glimpse into the lives and specialties of some of these Top Doctors, we’ve profiled eight of them, and have included tips, info, and advice from several others, who, like all on this list, are, frankly, the best of the best in Westchester.
