Sixty-one physicians affiliated with Robert Wood Johnson Medical Group, the faculty practice of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, were selected for the Best Doctors in America® List for 2015-2016. Only 5 percent of physicians in the United States earn this prestigious honor, determined by impartial peer review.
Robert Wood Johnson Medical Group physicians named represent a comprehensive range of primary and specialty care, including cardiovascular disease, women's health, surgery, pediatrics, and neurology, among others.
Doctors in more than 40 specialties and 400 subspecialties of medicine appear on this year's list; more than half of those specialties feature Robert Wood Johnson Medical Group physicians.
In 12 subspecialty areas, including care for scleroderma and issues related to the pituitary, thyroid, and irritable bowel disease, Robert Wood Johnson Medical Group doctors were the only individuals in the state recognized for their particular specialty, while in an additional eight subspecialties, they represented one of only two New Jersey doctors selected for the list in their areas of expertise. Moreover, two out of the three 2015-2016 Best Doctors in America® physicians in New Jersey who specialize in movement disorders are members of the medical group.
"These physicians exemplify the high-value health care we strive for in all aspects of our patient care, and we congratulate them on this recognition," says Sherine E. Gabriel, MD, MSc, dean, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. "It is representative not only of the exceptional skills of the individuals named, but also is indicative of the dedication each member of our team has to providing the utmost level of care and service to our patients every day."
The highly regarded Best Doctors in America List, assembled by Best Doctors Inc., results from polling of more than 40,000 physicians in the United States. In a confidential review, current physician listees answer the question, "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?" Best Doctors Inc. evaluates the review results and verifies all additional information to meet detailed inclusion criteria. Physicians cannot pay to be included in the database, nor are they paid to provide their input.
