Super Doctors - Key Professional Media - 2008 Edition CoverDr. Bernstein has been nominated by his colleagues as one of the best doctors in New York in Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors list for 13 consecutive years.

The Super Doctors 2012 list, published by Key Professional Media as a special section in the May 20, 2012 issue of New York Times Magazine, has now also included Dr. Bernstein as one of New York City’s best dermatologists.

The list is a directory of the area’s top physicians that is derived from a thorough selection process. First, doctors complete a survey and nominate peers from whom they would seek medical care. Research staff at the company adds to the peer-nominated list any doctors who have achieved certain credentials or honors, usually physicians in highly specialized areas of medical treatment. All candidates are then evaluated using a set of 10 criteria, including: years of experience, hospital appointments and fellowships, professional activities, leadership positions, academic achievements/positions, board certifications, publications and presentations, honors and awards, and other outstanding achievements in medicine. Based on this evaluation, doctors with the highest scores form a “blue ribbon panel” where they evaluate physicians within their own area of expertise. Once the highest-scoring doctors are contacted and independently verified to be clear of any other outstanding disciplinary issues, the list is ready to go to press.

As with the Castle Connolly ‘Best Doctors‘ list, which appears annually in a special issue of New York Magazine, Dr. Bernstein is honored to be recognized by the people who best know medicine and medical practice, his colleagues in the New York area.
