Jamestown, New York (Monday, December 21, 2009) - Two area physicians, on staff at WCA Hospital, have been chosen as one of “America’s Top Doctors” in Western New York by the Buffalo Spree Magazine (January/February 2010 Edition). Selected as Top Docs were Thomas Andrews, M.D. Obstetrician and Gynecologist at Lane Women’s Health Group, and Daniel Glotzer, M.D., FACS, General and Vascular Surgeon and a physician member of Jamestown Area Medical Associates, LLP (JAMA).
America’s Top Doctors® list will appear in the January/February 2010 issue of the Buffalo Spree Magazine. The doctors were chosen by their peers, based primarily for their excellence in patient care through Castle Connolly’s surveying and research methods. Survey respondents were asked to nominate peer physicians to whom they would send members of their family. The selected physicians are recognized experts in the fields of obstetrician and gynecology, and surgery.
They are representatives of the more than 100 physicians on staff at WCA Hospital.
“We congratulate these exceptional physicians for this special recognition,” said Betsy T. Wright, WCA Hospital President/CEO. “WCA Hospital has a rich history of serving the community’s health care needs and we are very fortunate to have this caliber of highly-trained, compassionate and dedicated physicians on our hospital’s medical staff.”
This is the fourth time Buffalo Spree has published a list of top doctors in Western New York. Every year, city/regional magazines throughout the United States provide these lists as an important service to their readers. Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. provides the list.
Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a physician-led team of researchers, followed a rigorous screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Using mail surveys, telephone surveys and electronic ballots, the research team asked board certified physicians and the medical leadership of leading hospitals to nominate highly skilled, exceptional doctors. Criteria developed by the Castle Connolly research team led to the final selection of those physicians most highly regarded by their peers in each specialty. The criteria used to determine physician eligibility for inclusion in the magazine: professional qualifications; education, residency, board certification, fellowships; professional reputation, hospital appointment, medical school faculty appointment, and experience. The physicians are grouped alphabetically by specialty and alphabetically within each specialty.
Thomas Andrews, M.D., a native of Erie, Pennsylvania, received his medical degree from Saint Louis University and trained at Harvard and the University of Rochester. He is a board-certified physician and fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. He has board-certification in Anesthesiology as well. His medical practice is located at Lane Women’s Health Group at 400 Foote Avenue in Jamestown, New York.
Daniel Glotzer, M.D., FACS, a native of Uruguay, South America, received his medical degree from the University of Montevideo, Uruguay School of Medicine. He completed a residency in general surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City and a fellowship in colon and rectal surgery at Saint Vincent’s Hospital in Erie, Pennsylvania and is board certified by the American Board of Surgery. Dr. Glotzer’s medical practice is located at Jamestown Medical Area Associates, LLP, Riverwalk Center, 15 South Main Street, Suite 170, Jamestown, New York.
