FEATURES
Looking for Dr. Right
Searching for a doctor in the medical capital of the world can be an expensive proposition, and a time-consuming one. From appointment to appointment, referral to referral, it's enough to make one ill (as if you weren't already). This issue of New York is an altogether healthier way to look for a doctor: a cross-checked compendium of referrals, in which doctors rate their peers. Also in this issue, we shine a bright light on ten of the city's top medical performers, from Dr. William Hamilton, the orthopedic surgeon responsible for the feet, ankles, and knees of many of the city's ballet dancers, to Dr. Scott Schroeder, who's on the front lines of the war against asthma in the Bronx. You'll also find concise reports on the latest treatments -- and a lineup of the top practitioners -- in specialties that cross medical disciplines, from Alzheimer's to hypertension.
