“Recognition from a source, such as America’s Top Doctors for Cancer, is always appreciated. It further confirms that our dedicated faculty physicians are highly regarded by their peers and their patients. Their collaborative style with other health-care professionals at our partner hospitals – Wishard Health Services, the Roudebush VA Medical Center and Clarian Health and our colleagues at other campuses such as IU Bloomington, Purdue and Notre Dame – makes their impact even greater,” said D. Craig Brater, dean of the IU School of Medicine.
Published by Castle Connolly, the guide contains detailed profiles of more than 2,100 of America’s leading cancer specialists across more than 40 medical specialties. The doctors are selected by a physician-led research team based on comprehensive national surveys of physicians and medical leaders.
