Greenwich Magazine asked Castle Connolly to compile a list of the area’s top medical experts

When you need the name of a good doctor, a good place to find one is from another doctor that you respect. Moffly Media asked Castle Connolly, the physician-led medical data research team whose job it is to vet doctors around the country, to provide a list of the top physicians in Fairfield County for their annual Top Docs list. As a result, the January 2011 Top Doctors issue of Greenwich, Stamford, New Canaan/ Darien and Westport Magazines provided information on over 757 doctors in 25 medical specialties.  This year’s list included six physicians from ONS including neurosurgeons Paul Apostolides, MD and Amory Fiore, MD; orthopedic surgeons Michael Clain, MD; James Cunningham, MD and Paul Sethi, MD; and physiatrist Halina Snowball, MD.

“ONS is proud of our team and our commitment to providing excellence in care for our patients,” said Dr. Apostolides. “The multidisciplinary nature of ONS makes us unique and makes it possible to provide patients with access to the most advanced techniques and treatments available in orthopedics, neurosurgery and physiatry.”

To compile this list, the Castle Connolly’s experts first asked medical leaders in lower Fairfield County to point out physicians believed to be the best in their respective fields. The nominees’ credentials, including educational and professional experience, were then carefully checked.
