TOLEDO, Ohio, Aug. 18, 2011 – ProMedica physicians, Anthony Comerota, MD and Michael McPhee, MD have been named to the recently announced U.S. News & World Report list of Top Doctors. The list is comprised of more than 27,000 top physicians in more than a dozen medical specialties across the country.
Dr. Comerota was recognized for vascular surgery and also received the distinction of being in the top 1% in the nation for his specialty. Dr. McPhee was recognized for cancer surgery.
The U.S. News Top Doctors list was created in collaboration with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., publisher of America's Top Doctors and several other consumer health guides. The list was built upon data from Castle’s Top Doctors, a database comprised of doctors nominated by their peers in an extensive survey process and screened by a physician-led research team.
In addition to mail and online surveys, the physician-led research team contacts leading specialists, chairs of clinical departments and vice presidents of medical affairs in order to identify the top specialists for most diseases and specialties. The physician’s credentials are carefully reviewed, taking into account medical education, training, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements, and malpractice and disciplinary history, etc.
