23 Yale Cancer Center physicians named to New York magazine's 'Best Doctors' list

New York magazine recently named 23 Yale Cancer Center physicians among the best in the New York metropolitan area in its 16th annual "Best Doctors" issue.

Castle Connolly Medical Ltd, a New York City research and information firm, determines the rankings based on a regional peer-review survey that asks thousands of licensed physicians to nominate the physicians who, in their judgment, are the best in their field and related fields.

The 2013 "Best Doctors" issue, which features a total of 1,198 physicians, is online at nymag.com/bestdoctors.
