ONS is proud to announce that 16 physicians from the practice have been named
2020 Top Doctors in Fairfield County by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a respected national medical data research company. Fifteen of the designees have received this accolade for several consecutive years. However, physiatrist Christopher Sahler, MD, joins the elite roster after becoming eligible for nomination in 2019. David Nocek, MD, who retired last year, received the designation as well.
WHAT IT TAKES TO BE TOPS
The Castle Connolly Top Doctors are nominated by their peers for talent and expertise in their medical specialties. A Castle Connolly physician-directed research team then reviews the credentials of each nominee. They give special scrutiny to medical education, training, board certification, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements, years in practice and reputation, according to the organization’s website.
Moffly Media published the results of the annual survey in the January issues of Greenwich Magazine, Stamford Magazine and New Canaan/Darien Magazine. As in past years, ONS has the most physicians ranked than any other practice.
