“Twice as many Maimonides physicians (14%) were named as Top Doctors compared to the national average (7%), reflecting the outstanding caliber of our faculty, and I could not be more proud of the Maimonides providers who earned this recognition,” said Dr. Robert Press, Executive Vice President of Medical Affairs at Maimonides Health. “Our providers define and reflect the culture of excellence at Maimonides, where we relentlessly focus on exceptional patient outcomes. We’re proud to deliver top-notch, culturally sensitive care to the people of Brooklyn, and we appreciate the unparalleled talent and staff who work hard daily to make that a reality.
