Three physicians at Weiss Memorial Hospital made the “Top Doctors” list in Chicago magazine’s January 2010 issue: orthopedic surgeon Henry Finn, M.D.; obstetrician and gynecologist Elliot Levine, M.D.; and plastic surgeon Lawrence Zachary, M.D.
The list, according to the magazine, includes “physicians most highly regarded by their peers.” It was prepared by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., based on mail and telephone surveys, as well as electronic ballots, sent to physician and medical leadership of “leading local hospitals to identify highly skilled exceptional doctors.”
