LAWRENCE and HYANNIS, Mass., June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., America’s trusted source for identifying Top Doctors, has selected Dr. Drasko Simovic for inclusion in its highly selective 2014 Top Doctors list.
Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. is a highly regarded healthcare research and information company that identifies top doctors in America and provides consumers with detailed information about physicians. The Top Doctor list is based on an extensive nominating process in which doctors who excel in their specialties are selected by their peers. Their credentials and qualifications are then carefully reviewed and evaluated by a physician-led research team and key personnel who select the honorees. Doctors cannot pay to be included on a Castle Connolly Top Doctors® list and they cannot nominate themselves.
In addition to peer nominations, a physician-led research team makes thousands of phone calls each year to leading specialists, chairs of clinical departments and others involved in healthcare, gathering further information regarding the top specialists for various diseases and procedures. All told, fewer than 36,000 physicians – less than 5% of the nation’s licensed physicians – have been selected as Castle Connolly Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties.
“It is such an honor to receive this recognition from my peers as our mission as always been to earn the trust and confidence of our colleagues and to provide referring physicians with the highest level of Electrodiagnostic Medicine,” says Dr. Simovic. “A thorough and properly conducted EMG test is a key diagnostic step as physicians select the best course of treatment for their patients. We are grateful physicians choose us to be part of that important process and are committed to continuing to provide excellent service to the medical community.”
