Urologist, a pioneering robotic prostate surgeon, earns accolade in July issue, receives honor from Castle Connolly as one of America’s Top Doctors
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 12, 2017
Dr. Scott Miller, M.D., of the Glenridge Robotics office (5730 Glenridge Drive, Suite 200, Atlanta) and Midtown office (1 Baltimore Place, Suite 350, Atlanta) of Georgia Urology, appears on Atlanta magazine’s 2017 list of Top Doctors, which arrives annually in its July issue. This is Dr. Miller’s ninth year in a row on the prestigious list.
In addition, Dr. Miller, who serves as medical director of Northside Hospital’s Advanced Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery Program, also owns the distinction of being ranked in a pair of national categories ––America’s Top Doctors and America’s Top Doctors for Cancer–– by established healthcare research firm Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. According to Castle Connolly, its national guides “aim to identify the top 1 percent of specialists and sub-specialists” in the United States.
Atlanta magazine uses a database of top doctors compiled by Castle Connolly to assist in its annual Top Doctors issue. This year, the publication honors 720 physicians. Doctors are nominated for consideration through both a nationwide survey and a peer nomination process open to licensed physicians in Carroll, Cherokee, Clayton, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, and Rockdale counties. Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers then select the Top Doctors through a rigorous screening process that includes an evaluation of educational and professional experience.
As a longtime recipient, Dr. Miller greatly appreciates the acknowledgment.
“I cherish the honor of being recognized as a top urologist in the state,” Dr. Miller said. “My mission continues to be providing the best possible treatment I can by advancing my skill in robotic prostate surgery. Caring for patients and bringing greater visibility to prostate cancer is an honor and privilege.”
