New York magazine’s 2008 list of the region’s top doctors once again includes many Yale Medical Group (YMG) physicians.

This year Yale boasts 62 “top docs” in 40 specialties, serving all age ranges from newborns and children to adults and seniors.

The list, published in the magazine’s June 16 issue, is based on the annual Top Doctors New York Metro Area guidebook, published by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., which invites doctors to nominate peers to be recognized for their medical excellence.

According to the company, the annual New York guidebook lists the top 10 percent of the metro area’s physicians. New York magazine’s list is more selective—the top quarter of the top 10 percent, or about 1,400 physicians.

“Our strong representation in the New York metro area highlights the fact that YMG is a regional—and in some cases national—practice. Patients throughout New York and New England are coming to see YMG as a medical destination of choice,” explains David J. Leffell, M.D., CEO of YMG, deputy dean for clinical affairs and professor of dermatology and surgery.
