A medical publisher has announced its “Top Doctors for 2017,” naming six Holy Family Hospital physicians to the list.

Holy Family Hospital’s physicians listed by Castle Connolly are orthopedic surgeons Eric Arvidson, Barry Bickley, and Tahsin Ergin; urologist Steven Previte; plastic surgeon George Chatson and Otolaryngologist Daryl Colden.

“We place a great deal of emphasis on quality at Holy Family Hospital, and it’s gratifying to know that an outside organization such as Castle Connolly recognizes the qualifications of our medical staff,” said John Alexander, Holy Family Hospital’s chief medical officer and vice president of Medical Affairs, Quality and Safety.

Castle Connolly publishes its regional list to help consumers find high quality health care providers. Physicians are rated in the top 10 percent of in their medical specialty in their geographic region, and considered physician leaders within their communities. Doctors are nominated by their peers, and each year the organization receives more than 150,000 nominations.

“Our goal is to deliver the best possible health care close to home, and to accomplish that we need outstanding physicians,” says Holy Family Hospital President Craig Jesiolowski. “We are proud to have each of these physicians on our Holy Family Hospital team.”

Once a physician is nominated, medical education, training, board certifications, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements and malpractice and disciplinary histories are scrutinized by Castle Connolly’s physician-led research team.

Castle Connolly’s research methodology is designed to identify physicians that will speed patient healing, minimize pain and discomfort, shorten recovery periods, and enhance and lengthen lives, to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients.
