Sarasota Orthopedic Associates is proud to announce that Paul H Lento, MD has been named a “Top Doc” for the third year in a row by the auditing firm of Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. Physicians are nominated by their peers and selections are made after careful review of the Castle Connolly physician-directed research team. Physicians cannot pay for inclusion nor nominate themselves for this distinction.
All licensed MDs and DOs are invited to participate in this online process to nominate other doctors whom they feel are most outstanding in their medical specialties, in any area of medicine, and in any part of the country. The Castle Connolly physician-led research team makes tens of thousands of phone calls each year, talking with leading specialists, chairs of clinical departments and vice presidents of medical affairs, seeking to gather further information regarding the top specialists. Each year, Castle Connolly receives nearly 100,000 nominations via this process and listings are updated continuously.
