"The Most Trusted Sports Specialist in Atlanta"

December 5th, 2008

Atlanta Magazine asked doctors themselves who they would call when they needed medical attention, and the results have been tallied.

Dr. Karas was cited among the city's most trusted physicians and the most trusted sports medicine specialist in the nation's ninth largest metropolitan area.

The July 2007 Top Doctors list was put together by the New York-based research firm Castle Connolly Medical Ltd.  Here's how they compile the list:

The evaluation process begins with identification of a pool of board-certified physicians randomly chosen from all the doctors practicing in metro Atlanta. These doctors receive letters inviting them to go online and nominate other physicians they feel are clinically outstanding, both on the regional and national levels. Also, Castle Connolly solicits nominations from hospital presidents, vice presidents of medical affairs or the equivalent positions, and the chiefs of various medical services. All nominations are anonymous and confidential...

Castle Connolly seeks nominations not only of those who excel in academic medicine and research but, most importantly, those physicians who exhibit excellence in patient care-physicians to whom nominating physicians would send members of their own families...

Advertising in Atlanta Magazine in no way influences the selection of doctors for this issue or for any listings that Castle Connolly will publish or license in the future...

In fact, no less than sixty-four Emory physicians made this prestigious list...quite a feat.
