"We're very proud to have so many Castle Connolly Top Doctors, who serve as a testament to the high-quality care we strive to provide to our community"
MIAMI, FL, July 27, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Castle Connolly recently named 58 physicians associated with Mount Sinai Medical Center of Florida to their 2022 list of Top Doctors.
Only about 7 percent of the nation's licensed physicians are selected annually as Castle Connolly Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties. Top Doctors are nominated by peer physicians and selected by the physician-led Castle Connolly research team.
"We're very proud to have so many Castle Connolly Top Doctors, who serve as a testament to the high-quality care we strive to provide to our community," says Mount Sinai Medical Center's President and CEO Gino R. Santorio. "We are focused on continuing to recruit and retain the country's most talented physicians, and it's a wonderful honor that 58 of them are recognized this year."
One of Mount Sinai's 2022 Castle Connolly Top Doctors is cardiac surgeon Steve Xydas, MD. Dr. Xydas serves as chief of the Columbia University Division of Cardiac Surgery; co-director of the Mount Sinai Heart Institute; and co-director of the Aortic Center. Named a Top Doctor every year since 2016 – in both New Jersey and Florida – Dr. Xydas joined Mount Sinai in 2017.
"This recognition from other physicians validates that I've made a difference with my service to patients — that my surgical results exemplify what people would want for a family member or friend," Dr. Xydas says. "And it's special to be nominated and chosen as a Top Doctor by peers in two different regions of the country."
