Four New England Eye Center Ophthalmologists
Named To Boston Magazine's Top Doctor List

Eye Care Specialists Receive Top Recognition From Their Peers

BOSTON, MA November 23, 2015 – Four New England Eye Center Ophthalmologists are among the 18 Top Ophthalmologists named in Boston magazine's Top Docs issue released this week (December 2015).

Jay S. Duker, MD, Thomas R. Hedges III, MD, Michael Raizman, MD, and Mitchell Strominger, MD have been selected by their peers as some of the Best Doctors in Boston, listed in the December 2015 issue of Boston Magazine’s “Top Doctor” issue. Click here for a link to the full listing.

Each year, Boston Magzine solicits nominations from among thousands of physicians in private practice-randomly selected-as well as to the medical leadership of major medical centers, specialty hospitals, teaching hospitals and regional medical centers. The process seeks doctors who excel in academic medicine and research, and those with outstanding interpersonal skills.

Boston magazine recognized 82 Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children physicians in 45 different specialties in the 2015 “Top Doctors” issue. "Both the number of our doctors honored and the wide range of specialties in which they practice increased from 2014," said Michael Wagner, MD, the President and CEO or Tufts Medical Center. "This is a testament to the expertise and dedication of our phenomenal physicians, the depth and breadth of their clinical skills and their commitment to, and compassion for, our patients."
