New York Magazine Lists 99 Best Docs from North Shore LIJ

Return to Heart Health Updates

A record total of nearly 100 physicians affiliated with the North Shore-LIJ Health System were listed recently in the 14th edition of New York magazine’s annual “New York’s Best Doctors” issue. Of the 99 North Shore-LIJ physicians listed in the magazine, 42 were selected from Lenox Hill Hospital, the newest addition to the North Shore-LIJ Health System. The cumulative total represents the largest number of North Shore-LIJ physicians selected by the magazine since it began publishing its “Best Doctors” edition. North Shore-LIJ had nearly the most doctors listed in the magazine than any other health system in the New York area.

The list is compiled based on peer-review surveys conducted by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a New York-based research and information company. This year’s final list amounted to 1,144 physicians with 63 different specialties from all five boroughs and several surrounding areas. Below is a breakdown of the 99 North Shore-LIJ physicians by hospital affiliation and clinical specialty.
