U.S. News Media Group released its list of “U.S. News Top Doctors,” which includes 11 physicians on the Medical Dental Staff of Lancaster General Hospital (LGH). Physicians were recommended for their clinical skills by other doctors and individually vetted by a physician-led research team.
The LGH physicians selected are: Holmes D. Morton, M.D., pediatrician, specially noted in the list as among the top 1% in the nation in his specialty of genetic and rare disorders; Philip M. Bayliss, M.D., perinatologist; Bruce A. Brod, M.D., dermatologist; Peter DeGreen, M.D., medical oncologist; Michael A. Del Terzo, M.D., urologist; Daleela G. Dodge, M.D., surgeon; Kerry T. Givens, M.D., ophthalmologist; Frances C. Gross, D.O., pediatrician; Mark V. Jarowenko, M.D., urologist; Lee A. Klombers, M.D., ophthalmologist; and Stephen W. Tifft, M.D., pediatrician.
The Top Doctors list was created by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., publisher of America’s Top Doctors and other consumer health guides. The free searchable directory is available at www.usnews.com/top-doctors that lists nearly 30,000 peer-nominated physicians across the country. Consumers can search for a Top Doctor by location, hospital affiliation, and a full range of specialties and subspecialties.
Castle Connolly assembled the roster of Top Doctors by soliciting nominations from physicians in academic medical centers, specialty hospitals, and regional hospitals and physicians in private practice. Its research team then reviewed each nominee’s training, achievements, and appointments, among other credentials.
U.S. News Top Doctors builds on the Best Hospitals rankings released July 19, in which LGH physicians received high-performance rankings in the following eight adult specialties: Diabetes & Endocrinology; Ear, Nose & Throat; Gastroenterology; Geriatrics; Gynecology; Nephrology; Orthopedics and Urology. The Best Hospitals rankings are available online at www.usnews.com/besthospitals.
