Paterson, NJ [November 07, 2012] - New Jersey Monthly magazine released their 2012 Top Doctors list and St. Joseph's Healthcare System is proud to announce that among the 840 physicians in 68 medical specialties included are 5 of our radiologists. This annual list of the Garden State's best medical practitioners is based on an independent survey.
Congratulations to the following St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center Radiologists for being selected: Kalavathy Balakumar, MD; Edward Milman, MD; Prashant Parashurama, MD; Orestes Sanchez, MD; and Frank Yuppa, MD, Chairman, Department of Radiology, SJRMC.
For information about the expertise of these physicians, and other St. Joseph's Healthcare System medical staff members, please visit us online at www.StJosephsHealth.org.
To compile the list, 'New Jersey Monthly' commissioned an independent survey by Leflein Associates, a research firm in Ringwood, NJ. Questionnaires were mailed to every doctor licensed in New Jersey for at least five years. Each of the doctors was asked to vote for physicians he or she would choose to treat him or herself or a family member. The votes were tallied and preliminary results provided to 'New Jersey Monthly'. Next, a blue-ribbon advisory board of New Jersey doctors was asked to examine the preliminary results for possible additions or deletions, with special attention to physicians in their respective fields of practice or regions of the state. The 24 member board was selected by New Jersey Monthly from among top vote getters in previous surveys. 'New Jersey Monthly' also received special assistance from the Medical Society of New Jersey in compiling this year's list.
