Recently Released U.S. News Top Doctors List Contains Four Physicians From Long Island Based Neurological Surgery, P.C.

Neurosurgeons Jeffrey A. Brown, M.D., F.A.C.S. and Robert N. Holtzman, M.D., along with neurologist Alan B. Ettinger, M.D. and neuroradiologist John Pile-Spellman, M.D., F.A.C.R, have been named to U.S. News & World Report’s 2011 “Best Doctors” list. The four specialists are attending physicians with Neurological Surgery, P.C., one of the Northeast’s leading practices of neurosurgeons and allied specialists.

“To have four physicians from a private practice named to this list is quite an honor,” said Michael H. Brisman, M.D., F.A.C.S., a senior partner at Neurological Surgery, P.C. “Their selection for ‘Best Doctors’ is further validation that our practice provides the most advanced university-level care in a community setting.”

The four NSPC physicians chosen for the list are leaders in their fields. Dr. Brown is one of a select few highly specialized neurosurgeons in the U.S. who use a range of modalities to treat chronic facial pain. A leading neurosurgeon with extensive experience treating a variety of brain and spinal conditions, Dr. Holtzman has practiced at some of the nation’s top teaching hospitals and academic medical centers. Dr. Ettinger is a nationally known epilepsy specialist who has dedicated his life to helping individuals with seizures and related disorders. Dr. Pile-Spellman is an international leader in interventional neuroradiology, a field of medicine that uses image-guided catheter-based techniques to treat diseases of the blood vessels of the brain and spine.

U.S. News Top Doctors was developed in collaboration with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., publisher of America's Top Doctors® and other guides, and was built upon data from Castle Connolly's Top Doctors™. Castle Connolly bases its Top Doctors selections on nominations submitted by other doctors from across the nation and is reviewed by its physician-led research team.
