ETMC physicians named to Super Doctors® 2016 list

January 25, 2017

Several ETMC physicians have been named to the Super Doctors® 2016 list, which identifies top doctors in the United States as selected by their peers and an independent research group.

ETMC physicians named to the Super Doctors® 2016 list include Eldor Brish, MD, pain management; George Plotkin, MD, PhD, neurology; Stephen Rydzak, MD, internal medicine and David Sloan, MD, internal medicine. Savitha Shastry, MD, endocrinology, was named a “Rising Star.”

Selection involves a rigorous multi-step process designed to identify physicians who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.

Each year Super Doctors invites physicians to nominate colleagues they know to be exceptional in their specified field. The research staff also searches medical databases, online sources and publications for doctors who have attained certain credentials, honors or professional achievements.

The Super Doctors list is approximately 5 percent of the physicians within the respective state or region, and no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list. To be eligible for Rising Stars, candidates must be active physicians who have been fully-licensed to practice for approximately 10 years or less.
