Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. has been America’s trusted source for identifying top doctors for over 20 years. The selection process is based on the foundation of over 50,000 peer nominations from any licensed physicians (MDs and DOs) who would like to participate. Nominated physicians are highly trusted and respected by their peers, not only because of their extraordinary training and clinical skills, but also because of the amount of time, care, and concern they dedicate to all of their patients. Every year, Castle Connolly receives about 100,000 nominations of the most outstanding physicians across medical specialties. The company’s physician-led research team carefully reviews every nominee’s credentials, which includes scrutiny of medical education, training, board certifications, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements, and malpractice and disciplinary history.
Among the 2016 Castle Connolly Top Doctors of New York is Dr. Alan Dechiario, who has the following to say about being the best doctor he can be for his patients.
“Even in the face of the steadily changing practice of medicine, I never lose sight of its foundation: the doctor patient relationship. My constant goal is to incorporate new advances in medicine into a traditional, personal, and patient centered approach to care. I understand that what my patients need and want is a caring, thorough, available, smart and connected partner and advocate; and I work hard to make sure that my staff and I portray and deliver these values. I maintain my academic affiliation and enjoy teaching medical students, and I bring the skills of teacher and motivator into my daily practice. Most of all, I enjoy working in a close relationship with my patients.”
