Morton Hospital Physicians Named to "Top Doctors" List

Three Morton Hospital physicians have been named to the 2016 Top Doctors List by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. (Castle Connolly), a highly-regarded healthcare research company that specializes in providing consumers with information about the nation’s best doctors and hospitals. 

Taunton providers Dr. Bryan Bagdasian, internal medicine specialist, Dr. George Chilazi, cardiologist, and Dr. Donald Accetta, allergy and immunology specialist, made this year’s list following Castle Connolly’s extensive selection process which includes collection of peer nominations, extensive research, and careful review and screening by a doctor-directed research team.  Physicians nominate doctors whom they feel are the most outstanding in their medical specialties, in any area of medicine and in any part of the country.  Each year, Castle Connolly receives nearly 100,000 peer nominations via this process. 

“Morton Hospital has an extraordinary medical staff, and we are very pleased to see some of our long-time providers recognized in this manner,” said Deborah Bitsoli, president of Morton Hospital. “We congratulate these amazing doctors on this well-deserved honor and thank them for the high quality care they continue to provide to our patients and community.”

According to Castle Connelly, their research methodology is designed to identify doctors that will speed patients' healing, minimize pain and discomfort, shorten recovery periods and enhance and lengthen lives - in other words, achieve the best possible health outcomes.  Doctors cannot pay to be listed as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor, nor can they nominate themselves.
