Fifteen Norwood Hospital Physicians have been recognized by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. as being among the best in the area.
Healthcare research company, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd, assembles an annual list of the nation’s Top Doctors, based upon peer nominations, extensive research and careful review and screening by a doctor-directed research team. Physicians nominate doctors whom they feel are the most outstanding in their medical specialties, in any area of medicine and in any part of the country. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be listed as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor, nor can they nominate themselves. Each year, Castle Connolly receives nearly 100,000 peer nominations via this process.
According to Castle Connelly, their research methodology is designed to identify doctors that will speed patients' healing, minimize pain and discomfort, shorten recovery periods and enhance and lengthen lives - in other words, achieve the best possible health outcomes. The Castle Connolly physician-led research team carefully reviews the credentials of every physician being considered for inclusion. The review includes, among other factors, scrutiny of medical education, training, board certifications, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements and malpractice and disciplinary history.
“Our lists are based on peer nominations and professional assessments by our physician-led research team not on hype, advertising, or third parties that have something to gain by recommending a particular provider,” states the company on their website.

- John Al-Jamal, M.D. – Obstetrics and Gynecology
