Although plastic surgery is safer and more common than ever, it’s understandable for people to still be a little anxious or uneasy before their surgery has been performed. This is why the professionals here at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. do everything we can to make our patients feel comfortable and reassured through every phase of their surgical journey. Part of this means communicating with our patients and ensuring that we are with them every step of the way. But part of it is establishing a standard of professionalism, quality, and trust that people know they can count on when they visit our office. That is why we are so proud to announce that this year three of the expert plastic surgeons, Dr. Franklyn Elliott, Dr. Joseph K. Williams, and Dr. Michael Mirzabeigi, have been recognized as “Top Doctors” in the field of plastic surgery.
We wanted to begin by differentiating the two different Top Doctors designations in Atlanta. Dr. Elliott and Dr. Williams were awarded the Top Doctors designation by Castle Conolly and Modern Luxury Publications. Castle Conolly is a healthcare research and information company that has been helping to guide consumers to America’s highest-quality doctors and hospitals since 1991. Among other awards that a physician can receive, the Top Doctors designation is unique because the nomination and awarding process is predicated on the evaluations of experienced medical professionals in the honorees respective field, as well as real life testimonials from patients. Each year, Castle Connolly collects peer-selected nominations from doctors in over fifty different specialties, including internal medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, and of course cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. After a rigorous screening process has concluded, nominees are voted on by hundreds of thousands of physicians, as well as academic medical centers, specialty hospitals, and regional and community hospitals from all over the country. The end goal is to create a list of healthcare professionals that excel in both patient care and academic medical research.
Dr. Mirzabeigi was selected as a Top Doctor by Atlanta Magazine. As part of an annual tradition here in Atlanta, Atlanta Magazine and their partners at Professional Research Services (PRS) select the most worthy recipients among the city’s medical community. PRS is an organization that conducts peer-reviewed surveys to locate the highest level professionals within (but not limited to) the medical field within a specific geographic area for over 15 years. All licensed physicians, MDs and DOs, who practice in the Metro Atlanta area are eligible for nomination and only Atlanta-area physicians can vote on the final results.
The plastic surgeons here at Atlanta Plastic Surgery are no strangers to Top Doctor status. Dr. Elliott has been named a Top Doctor for over 20 consecutive years. Dr. Williams has earned the honor over 15 times himself. And Dr. Mirzebeigi has now earned the distinction for the second consecutive year. We have worked hard to develop our reputation as one of the Southeast’s leading providers of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery for over fifty years. These doctors earning Top Doctors status once again furthers our mission of being able to provide the best-possible surgical experience to more patients than ever before.
