"The problem in a former smoker is some nasty cell
wandering around that can cause
trouble years later. If I can target that
son of a gun, maybe I can win!"

Best Doctors 2002
It's a counterintuitive law of medical progress: The more new treatments, new technologies, and breakthrough drugs, the harder it is to choose a doctor. The people who know what's hype and what's not, and who's pursuing the most promising therapies, are physicians themselves. And so, for our annual Best Doctors issue, we've asked thousands of local doctors to identify the best of their peers-from psychiatrists to sports doctors to surgeons in just about any specialty you can name. PLUS: Profiles of ten doctors who exemplify the best of New York medicine.
