New Jersey Plastic Surgery Physicians Extend Their Tenure with This Prestigious Listing
Dr. Michael Rose and Dr. Matthew Kaufman, physicians at The Plastic Surgery Center of New Jersey and the affiliated Institute for Advanced Reconstruction, hold a notable distinction. Both have been selected numerous years for the prestigious Castle Connolly Top Doctors designation for the New York Metropolitan area. Dr. Rose has received this honor consecutively since 2006; Dr. Kaufman has been named consecutive years since 2008. Their most recent designation is for 2012.
Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors are defined as being among the top 10% of physician leaders within their region. The designation is also the resource for national listing in U.S. News and World Report, and the source for designations in more than 40 regional magazines.
Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors™ selection process begins with surveys of physicians and healthcare professionals. Each year, Castle Connolly surveys thousands of physicians and other healthcare professionals and asks them to identify excellent doctors in every specialty in their region and throughout the nation.
In addition to mail and online surveys, the Castle Connolly physician-led research team makes thousands of phone calls each year, talking with leading specialists, chairs of clinical departments and vice presidents of medical affairs, seeking to identify top specialists for most diseases and procedures.
Building on years of prior research, thousands of top doctors included in earlier editions of our guides are invited to offer their nominations for Castle Connolly America’s Top Doctors. Beginning in 2011, and moving forward, the nomination process invited every licensed MD and DO across the country to participate. This involved contacting over 50,000 physicians and healthcare executives, a nationwide distribution of nomination notifications via various media channels and partnering with US News and World Report as a means of expanding our process to physicians across the country.
The Castle Connolly physician-led research team carefully reviews the credentials of every physician being considered for inclusion in Castle Connolly Guides®, magazine articles and website. The review includes, among other factors, scrutiny of medical education, training, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements, and malpractice and disciplinary history.
Doctors cannot and do not pay to be listed in any Castle Connolly guide to top doctors. They are selected based on nominations by their peers and reviewed by Castle Connolly’s physician-directed research team.
