[April 2011] Connecticut Magazine named 56 Yale Medical Group physicians among the best in the state in its annual "Top Doctors" issue, including 10 who are new to the list this year. The story is in the magazine's April issue available on newsstands.
According to David J. Leffell, MD, CEO of Yale Medical Group, "This ongoing and expanding recognition reflects the broader impact of our superb physicians throughout the state and region." Dr. Leffell went on to comment that there is an increased number of women physicians on the Top Docs list this year "that reflects our commitment to excellence through diversity."
"I feel that the inclusion of so many Yale physicians reflects the commitment of the School of Medicine and the faculty toward clinical excellence, providing state-of-the-art therapies that bring cutting-edge scientific medical discoveries to the bedside," says Lynn Tanoue, MD, director of the Yale Cancer Center Thoracic Oncology Program, who was included on the list this year. "In my practice, these discoveries have resulted in improved survival and better quality of life for my patients."
Jonathan Grauer, MD, co-director of the Orthopaedic Spine Service, says, "It is, of course, an honor to be included on a list like this. We all work very hard to provide the best care possible, and it is flattering when we get feedback like this. "
The magazine sent a questionnaire to more than 5,000 physicians across the state, asking them to recommend a doctor to whom they would send a loved one for expert medical care. Then it combined their names with doctors who finished at the top of the magazines surveys from the years 2008-2010.
