One of the country’s fastest growing ophthalmology provider groups - SightMD – today continued its impressive trend of ‘Top Doctor’ awards with the announcement of cataract and LASIK specialist, Dr. John Mauro being named a ‘Top Doctor’ by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. 17th edition of Top Doctors: New York Metro Area, according to eye surgeon Jeffrey Martin, MD, FACS, Chief Executive Officer of SightMD.
“Dr. Mauro’s surgical skills and personal approach to patient care have been a tremendous asset to our organization since he joined our medical staff,” said Dr. Martin. “Only the physicians who are the very best in their specialties in their local communities are selected for inclusion in the ‘Top Doctor’ award,” he added. “So anytime one of our doctors earns this prestigious award, it makes all of us at SightMD extremely proud and this is especially rewarding to see Dr. Mauro recognized by his peers for his exceptional efforts.”
Over the past seven years, several physicians at SightMD have been voted as a ‘Top Doctor’ by Castle Connolly. “I honestly believe there are very few practices in the country who have earned more recognition than our doctors and we very pleased to now include Dr. Mauro to our growing list.”
The mission of Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. is to help consumers find the best healthcare. To assist the public in their educational efforts, Castle Connolly publishes a variety of books including the "Top Doctors" series, the most popular of which is America's Top Doctors®. The top doctors like Dr. Mauro who are listed in books and on this website's directory were nominated by their peers in an extensive survey process of thousands of American doctors each year. All ‘Top Doctors' medical educations, training, hospital appointments, disciplinary histories are screened by the Castle Connolly physician-led research team. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be included in any Castle Connolly Guide or online directory.
The company was founded by two respected leaders in healthcare, John K. Castle and John J. Connolly, Ed.D. Dr. Connolly was the President of New York Medical College for more than ten years. Mr. Castle served for six years as a commissioner and executive officer of the Joint Commission (formerly JCAHO); he also served as Chairman of the Board of New York Medical College for eleven years and served on its Board for twenty-two years.
“I could not be more proud to be included in the inner circle of Metro area physicians who have earned this special ‘Top Doctor’ award,” said Dr. Mauro. “It is something I truly appreciate because it serves as quiet reinforcement that my efforts to serve our patients in the most personal and professional way possible have not gone unnoticed by the public or by my peers.”
Dr. Mauro specializes in LASIK and cataract surgeries. While practicing at our Smithtown location, he strives to help those who are legally blind or have severely compromised vision. “Dr. Mauro is driven to provide exceptional eyesight to patients who are legally blind or suffer from severely low quality vision,” said Dr. Martin. “The bedside manner Dr. Mauro brings to his patients is second-to-none and is the reason people feel so comfortable coming to see him at SightMD.”
