Dr Christine Ren Fielding, Dr George Fielding, and NYU Honored

Castle Connolly’s NY Metro Top Doctors 2011 list has been released, and included Dr. Christine Ren Fielding and Dr. George Fielding – both of NYU Langone Weight Management Program. Castle Connolly explains:

Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors™ selection process begins with surveys of physicians and healthcare professionals. Each year, Castle Connolly surveys thousands of physicians and other healthcare professionals and asks them to identify excellent doctors in every specialty in their region and throughout the nation. When we began the research for the first edition of America’s Top Doctors®, we surveyed over 230,000 of the nation’s leading medical specialists, department chairs, residency program directors, vice presidents of medical affairs and presidents of the nation’s leading medical centers and specialty hospitals.

In addition, US News and World Report has ranked NYU Langone Medical Center as the #2 hospital in New York. In explaining the way they arrived at their top rankings, US News and World Report says:

The new rankings derive from the Best Hospitals methodology and data that produced the 2010-11 national rankings. All of the 4,852 U.S. hospitals were whittled down to much smaller groups by specialty that met stringent benchmarks such as a minimum number of certain types of serious cases. The top 25 percent of hospitals in each specialty that met those standards were identified, using the scoring methods employed in the national rankings… The Castle Connolly physician-led research team carefully reviews the credentials of every physician being considered for inclusion in Castle Connolly Guides®, magazine articles and website. The review includes, among other factors, scrutiny of medical education, training, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements, and malpractice and disciplinary history.
