GREAT NECK, N.Y. (PRWEB) June 13, 2018
Dr. Lyle Leipziger of Great Neck has been named a top plastic surgeon in several prestigious consumer guides this year, including New York magazine's latest “Best Doctors” issue. This is the twentieth consecutive year he has achieved this recognition.
Dr. Leipziger is chief of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at North Shore University Hospital and Long Island Jewish Medical Center. Board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Leipziger has extensive experience and expertise in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, breast and body. He sees patients at an elegant office located on Northern Boulevard in Great Neck.
New York magazine’s “Best Doctors” issue is an annual guide that seeks to list the best physicians in the New York metro area. Those named in the highly competitive directory are selected based on a survey of their peers, taking into account professional qualifications, reputation, and skill in dealing with patients, according to the publisher.
"It’s an honor and a privilege to be among the physicians chosen for this guide," said Dr. Leipziger. “It is especially gratifying to be named 20 years in a row, which I believe indicates that my staff and I are consistently achieving our goal of providing the highest quality of care.”
The New York magazine honor is Dr. Leipziger’s third major recognition this year. Last month, he was named to "Super Doctors," a directory published by MSP Communications. The list came out in a special insert in The New York Times and appeared online. Potential candidates are evaluated based on various indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, including hospital appointments, leadership positions, academic achievements, publications, and professional activities, according to the publisher.
Earlier this year, Dr. Leipziger was listed in the 2018 edition of “America's Top Doctors,” which seeks to identify the best specialists in the country. Physicians who appear on the list are among the top one percent of specialists around the country, according to the publisher, Castle Connolly. The selection process, based on peer nominations, includes surveys of physicians and healthcare professionals who are asked to identify excellent doctors in every specialty in their region and nationwide. A physician-led research team carefully reviews the credentials of each doctor, according to Castle Connolly, which publishes the list on its website.
Dr. Leipziger has impressive credentials, having trained at some of the finest medical institutions in the United States. After graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Johns Hopkins University, he went on to receive his medical degree from Cornell University Medical College. He completed his residency in plastic surgery at New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center. Dr. Leipziger was then awarded a fellowship at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions.
