21 Georgia Urology doctors, including some who practice locally, named 'Top Doctors' by Atlanta magazine

By AccessWDUN Staff

Twenty-one physicians from Georgia Urology, including several who practice in northeast Georgia, rank among Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors, according to Atlanta magazine.

 All are recognized in the magazine's July issue. More than 40 percent of the physicians in the publication’s urology category and all of the physicians in the pediatric urology category come from this one practice.

Atlanta magazine uses a database of top doctors compiled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a healthcare research company based in New York, to assist in its annual effort. This year, the publication honors 860 physicians. Doctors are nominated for consideration through both a nationwide survey and a peer nomination process open to licensed physicians in Carroll, Cherokee, Clayton, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, and Rockdale counties. 

The list includes:
