USF Health doctors named to national Top Doctors list

USF Health doctors are among the best and listed as such in the Top Doctor® list by Castle Connolly.

The list, released earlier this year, includes over 400 local physicians among 55 medical specialties – 82 of them are with USF Health.

USF Health Neurologist Dr. Theresa Zesiewicz.

For more than 25 years, Castle Connolly has conducted the survey that provides the Top Doctors list.

The annual survey involves nominations from peer physicians, who are asked “Where would you go if you needed care?” The process is anonymous and confidential, and doctors cannot nominate themselves. The resulting list, based on merit and inclusion cannot be bought, provides a collection of trusted resources for quality health care.

On this year’s list, 82 physicians on the list are with USF Health. The following list is of USF Health faculty physicians currently practicing medicine within nearly three dozen clinical sites, specialty care centers and affiliated hospitals throughout the region.
