Named Top Doctor for Women

Neil Fenske, MD, professor and chair of Dermatology at USF Health, was among four dermatologists in the Southeast and 17 nationwide named among America’s Top Doctors for Women in Women’s Health magazine.

Women’s Health magazine teamed up with research firm Castle Connolly to create a definitive list of America’s best doctors for women in 10 specialties. The list appears in the November 2008 issue of the magazine and is available online It was compiled through a comprehensive screening process conducted by Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers.

Using mail and telephone surveys and electronic ballots, physicians and the medical leadership at leading hospitals were asked to identify exceptional candidates. Each doctor’s experience was then thoroughly screened before a final selection was made.

Dr. Fenske’s special expertise in skin cancer and melanoma was noted. Melanoma is the second most common cancer in women in their late 20s, but when treated early the success rate tops 90 percent.
