Art Plastic Surgery is pleased to announce that Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. has recognized both Dr. John Cozzone and Dr. Luis Zapiach as New York Metro Area “Top Doctors” in plastic surgery for 2017! This is the third year in a row both of our plastic surgeons have been named to this esteemed list—an honor only the top 10–15% of physicians in the region are bestowed.
To be distinguished as a Castle Connolly “Top Doctor,” medical professionals must be nominated by their peers and undergo an extensive vetting process. Every year, Castle Connolly reaches out to over 50,000 doctors and medical care providers all over the United States, asking them to name other physicians who they feel are outstanding in their specific specialty. When all peer votes have been received and recorded, the physician-headed research team at Castle Connolly performs a comprehensive evaluation of every potential candidate. This review includes (but is not limited to):
- Education and training
- Board certifications
- Hospital appointments
- Professional accolades
- Administrative positions
- Disciplinary history
Once this assessment is finished, medical practitioners who accumulated the most peer votes—and who were also deemed qualified by the Castle Connolly research group—are named to the “Top Doctor” list.
Dr. Zapiach and Dr. Cozzone are incredibly humbled to have received this prestigious honor, and they are dedicated to maintaining the high level of care that has earned them recognition from peers and patients alike.
