July 2020

Atlanta magazine's 2020 Top Doctors issue

Nearly half of the physicians recognized in Atlanta magazine's July 2020 "Top Doctors" issue are physicians within Emory Healthcare, Emory Healthcare Network, Emory medical staff, or faculty of Emory University School of Medicine.

The annual listing — compiled by the New York-based research firm Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. — includes 31 faculty of the Emory Department of Surgery: Cletus Arciero, Kenneth Cardona, Michael Clark, Keith Delman, Thomas Dodson, Megan Durham, Yazan Duwayri, Felmont Eaves, Felix Fernandez, Seth Force, Robert Guyton, Michael Halkos, Peter H'Doubler, Kirk Kanter, William B. Keeling, Bradley Leshnower, Albert Losken, Raymond Lynch, Steven Macheers, Jeffrey Miller, Douglas Murphy, Kenneth Newell, Rona Norelius, Allan Pickens, J. Mark Rheudasil, Monica Rizzo, Charles Staley, Patrick Sullivan, John Sweeney, Mark Wulkan (retired from Emory in July 2020), and Joseph Zarge.

This year, 483 Emory doctors out of 1,002 were included in the list, which is more than any other health system in metro Atlanta. Patients can find these doctors practicing at more than 200 Emory Healthcare provider locations.

Castle Connolly compiles the annual "Top Doctors" list it has been publishing for the past 25 years using a survey, research, screening, and selection process involving hundreds of thousands of physicians, along with academic medical centers, specialty hospitals, and community hospitals across the nation to nominate top doctors. Castle Connolly's physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors.

In 2018, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. was acquired by Everyday Health Group, one of the world's most prominent digital health care companies.
