(ATLANTA) According to the latest Atlanta magazine “Top Doctors” issue of July 2014, five of Emory Eye Center’s physicians are listed among the top doctors in Atlanta, a listing of 347 physicians. 

Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a New York-based health care research firm, compiles the list of doctors nationwide, representing leading physicians in key regions and cities in the U.S.

Eye Center physicians are listed within the two categories, below:


•  Allen Beck, MD — Glaucoma
•  Valérie Biousse, MD — Neuro-Ophthalmology
•  Scott Lambert, MD – Pediatric ophthalmology
•  Timothy Olsen, MD — Retina


•  Nancy Newman, MD – Neurology and neuro-ophthalmology

Atlanta magazine "Health" coverTo compile the annual "Top Doctors" list, Castle Connolly uses a survey and research process involving tens of thousands of top doctors across America and the medical leadership of leading hospitals. Atlanta's top doctors are selected after peer nomination, extensive research, careful review and screening by Castle Connolly's doctor-directed research team. Atlanta magazine uses the research by Castle Connolly to provide detailed information about education, training and special expertise of Atlanta doctors. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly "Top Doctors". 

For the July 2014 “Top Doctors” feature, hundreds of Atlanta metro-area doctors within several metro counties were asked to name their most respected colleagues. The process sought nominations not only of physicians who excel in academic medicine and research but also those who exhibit excellence in patient care—those to whom nominating physicians would send their own families.
