Five Norwood Hospital physicians who were named to Boston Magazine’s 2014 annual Top Doctors list. The Norwood Hospital physicians are obstetrician/gynecologist John Al-Jamal, MD; pediatrician Jonathan Caine, MD; general surgeon Peter Lydon, MD; family medicine specialist James Macek, MD; and psychiatrist Norman Tabroff, MD.
The list, which is part of the magazine’s December 2014 issue and expanded online feature, is developed in partnership with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd, a health care research company. Boston Magazine’s annual look at Boston’s best physicians includes doctors in more than 50 specialty areas. 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.
“We congratulate these excellent physicians on this achievement,” said Emily Holliman, president of Norwood Hospital. “This just confirms what we already know: many of the area’s finest physicians are working right here in our community hospital.”
These five physicians are among 30 Steward doctors, representing 19 specialties, honored this year by Boston Magazine.
