CCBF Doctors Were Named in this year's New York Magazine's Best Doctors List

CCBF’s Dr. Sujit Sheth and Dr. Alexander Aledo were named in this year’s New York Magazine’s Best Doctors List. Both Dr. Sheth and Dr. Aledo were also previously featured on the 2014 list.

The list is an abridged version of Castle Connolly Medical Ltd’s annual guidebook Top Doctors: New York Metro Area, which lists the region’s top 10% physicians. Doctors are nominated by their peer medical professionals based on the idea that physicians are the best qualified to judge other doctors. Participating physicians take into account professional qualifications and reputation such as education, residency and board certification as well patient interaction skills such as listening and communicating effectively, demonstrating empathy, and instilling trust and confidence when nominating. Doctors cannot nominate themselves and all nominations are confidential. A Castle Connolly physician-led research team checks board certifications and licensing and investigates disciplinary histories.

Dr. Sheth and Dr. Aledo were among the 21 physicians named under the Pediatric Hematology-Oncology category. Dr. Sheth serves as the Chief of the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology and Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medical College. He is also the Attending Pediatrician at NewYork Presbyterian-Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. He is an expert in iron metabolism, thalassemia and sickle cell disease and recently published three NIH studies investigating various aspects of iron metabolism.

Dr. Aledo is the Director of Pediatric Oncology Program at the Komansky Center for Children’s Health. He is an institutional Principal Investigator for the Children’s Oncology Group research trials. He also serves as the Associate Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medical College as well as an Associate Attending Pediatrician at NewYork Presbyterian hospital.

CCBF would like to congratulate Dr. Sheth and Dr. Aledo for being named in this year’s Best Doctors List!
