Three Physicians Earn Honors from Castle Connolly Top Doctors

Coastal Orthopedics is honored to announce that three of our physicians have been named Castle Connolly Top Doctors for 2017

Orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist Dr. Steven J. Schafer, interventional pain management specialist Dr. Gennady Gekht and interventional pain management specialist Dr. Douglas L. Constant have been awarded this valued distinction.

This year marks the second year Dr. Constant has been named a Castle Connolly Top Doctor. Dr. Schafer was a Top Doctor for the past four years, and Dr. Gekht has been a Top Doctor for the last three years.

The honor is known throughout the medical industry as a true indicator of physician excellence. Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors are rigorously selected from among hundreds of thousands of physicians across the United States.

“Every day, it’s gratifying to hear our patients tell us how much they appreciate our physicians, so it’s wonderful to see them recognized on a national level for the care they provide,” said Coastal Orthopedics CEO Paige LeMay.

Every year, doctors are nominated by their peers for the Top Doctor honor. Then nominated physicians are reviewed by the physician-led research team at Castle Connolly. The team takes into account the physicians’ medical educations, training, hospital appointments, disciplinary histories and more.

Castle Connolly Top Doctors represent the very best physicians in their specialties and communities.
