Three physicians from the UNC Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery were named to U.S. News and World Report's "Top Doctors" list in 2012.
Richard H. Feins, Michael R. Mill and Benjamin E. Haithcock were named to the list. The physicians in the "Top Doctors" list are considered to be among the top 10% of doctors in their regions. Dr. Feins and Dr. Mill were also listed as among the top 1% in the nation in their specialties.
The list is based on ratings of doctors by Castle Connolly Medical, Ltd., publisher of "America's Top Doctors." Castle Connolly bases its ratings on nominations submitted by doctors and reviewed by a physician-led research team.
