New York City and Manhattan, NY
At NY Skin RX, we are honored to share the good news that Dr. Debra Wattenberg and Dr. Ilyse Lefkowicz have been chosen as NY Top Docs for another year! We pride ourselves in offering the best care in cosmetic and medical dermatology to Manhattan, the Upper East Side, and throughout New York City. Find out what receiving this recognition means, and why you would want to choose a NY Top Doc.
NY Top Doc has a stringent review process for selecting New York’s best doctors and dentists. First, the doctor must complete a questionnaire providing information about their education, certifications, and licensing, as well as the doctor’s continuing education accomplishments. Also included in the initial application process is a list of the doctor’s publications, charitable work, professional or administrative appointments, years in practice, and applicable achievements. But, this is just to get the ball rolling on the review process.
Once the application is received at NY Top Doc, there are additional criteria the doctor must meet, such as board certification. And, a malpractice and license review is conducted to ensure no actions have been taken against the doctor (pertaining to malpractice or board certification). What patients say matters, too. Patient reviews are collected and reviewed. There also is a ‘minimum years in practice’ standard because the quality of care improves the longer a doctor practices.
Finally, a collective team with a combined 40 years of experience in the medical field reviews the applicants thoroughly to decide who should receive the coveted recognition of NY Top Doctor. Applicants must be reviewed every 12 months (one year from the time they received their first approval).
