Cherry Hill, New Jersey (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
(June 2013) — Dr. Evan Sorokin of Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery has won his fourth consecutive Philadelphia Magazine Top Doc award. A distinguished honor among physicians including plastic surgeons in metro Philadelphia, the designation honors the city's most accomplished surgeons and other doctors.
"I am truly honored — and grateful — to be grouped with the best doctors in our area," says Dr. Sorokin, reportedly the first plastic surgeon in southern New Jersey to have received the award from Philadelphia Magazine 3, and now 4, years in a row. "It speaks not only to my dedication to my profession but to the effort extended every single day by everyone at my practice."
Top Doc (http://www.phillymag.com/health/top_docs/index.html) designations are awarded based on recommendations by honorees' peers in the medical community. Initial nominations come from physicians who endorse a particular practitioner they feel outshines other member of his or her specialty. Criteria include medical skill and training, professional accomplishments, and rapport with patients.
Dr. Sorokin, a board-certified plastic surgeon, credits the integrity associated with his practice as a major factor in his receiving the award.
"Technical skill is important, but I think our focus on patient comfort and education has also gone a long way in establishing our credibility as a practice," he says. "For example, when I perform breast augmentation in Philadelphia, I consider it my duty as a surgeon to take the time to develop a full understanding of the patient's goals and tailor the procedure to what she needs while keeping her safe. We listen to our patients and we're honest with them, and they appreciate that."
Patients also value the exclusive attention Dr. Sorokin gives them, he says.
"I make a concerted effort to spend quality time with each patient," he says. "By the time they go into the operating room for their procedure, they've had several one-on-one meetings with me to discuss their goals and options. For something as life-changing as plastic surgery, that kind of communication is essential."
No stranger to awards of this nature, Dr. Sorokin has earned several since establishing his practice in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, in 2003. He won his first Top Doc award from SJ Magazine in 2006. Since then, he has collected the honor multiple times from entities such as US News & World Report, New Jersey Monthly, Inside Jersey Magazine, and Consumer Research Guide.
Although Dr. Sorokin specializes in breast enhancement, he is well known for his skill in performing body contouring procedures such as abdominoplasty and liposuction in metro Philadelphia. He also offers a number of non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures at his medical spa.
