Nominations were completed by medical professionals practicing in the Greater Sarasota area, including Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice, Palmetto and Palmetto Bay, Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, North Port and Lakewood Ranch. Only one survey per person was submitted.Surveys and nominations remain anonymous. The nominations you provided will be utilized solely for the purposes of compiling, producing and publishing the Top Doctor Medical Resource in SRQ Magazine’s print and online platforms. Medical professionals were asked to only nominate professionals for whom they had personal knowledge of their skill and expertise. SRQ MEDIA partnered with DataJoe Research, a software and research company specializing in data collection and verification in collaboration with publishers across the United States. DataJoe Research facilitated all aspects of the online peer-voting process, also referencing government sources. DataJoe then tallied the nominations per category for each doctor to isolate the top honorees in each category. After collecting nominations and additional information, DataJoe checked and confirmed that each published honoree had a current, active license status with the state regulatory board. If there was no evidence of a doctor's current, active registration with the state regulatory board, that doctor was excluded from the program. Furthermore, any doctor who has been disciplined, up to the time-frame of the review process for an infraction by the state regulatory board, was excluded from the program. We recognize that there are many good doctors who are not shown in this representative program. This is only a sampling of the huge array of talented professionals within the region. Inclusion as an honoree is based on the opinions of responding doctors in the region and the results of the research campaign. We take time and energy to ensure fair voting.

ABOUT JEFFREY SILVERSTEIN I received a B.S. in Biology at Indiana University and my medical degree at West Virginia School of Medicine.

DERMATOLOGY ASSOCIATES Our practice believes that every patient deserves personalized care and attention, focusing on the individual's needs and concerns. A job well done means the patient feels their questions have been heard and addressed. Taking the time to listen and making sure each patient is participating in the treatment plan helps to set us apart. In dermatology, problems that present are usually visible, often bothersome, and affect a patient's quality of life. Whether removing a skin cancer or treating a bothersome rash, the patient can see the actual progress of treatment. Skin cancer surveillance and treatment are an integral part of dermatology, and can be life-saving. Regular dermatology appointments can improve patient's lives by helping them look and feel better.

PLEASE SHARE A BRIEF SUMMARY OF YOUR PRACTICE. Dr. Sugar believes in treating patients as though they are family members, even going so far as to ask questions like, “How would I treat this woman if she were my grandmother?” As a surgeon, he is naturally fascinated with the human body and with quality surgical techniques, but when asked about the most satisfying aspect of his work, he is quick to say, “People. I’m so humbled that people come to see me. They are often feeling anxious and uncertain, and I can play a role in helping them to leave here feeling comfortable. It’s incredibly gratifying to be a part of people’s lives like that.”Having met just after medical school, David and Stephanie Sugar have, in their words, “grown up together.” They like to keep a low-key, young-at-heart approach to their lives and their practice, with the goal being to provide a warm, relaxed, family atmosphere for staff and patients.

WHAT SETS YOUR PRACTICE APART? My patients and team members are an extension of my family, and family is extremely important to me. I created a friendly, warm environment at both of my offices (in Lakewood Ranch and at Doctors Hospital) so our patients feel comfortable and welcome. We take time with each one of our patients to ensure that we understand their situation, symptoms and medical history and can create an entirely individualized treatment plan for them. Because digestive health is a complicated specialty with countless varying factors, it’s paramount for patients to work with a gastroenterologist they know and trust. Our team provides the advanced knowledge and compassion to help people get back to what they love in life.

Tonantzin Matheus, MD HOW DOES YOUR PRACTICE IMPROVE THE LIVES OF YOUR PATIENTS? I treat patients at all stages of digestive health, from those who have been suffering for years to patients who are experiencing uncomfortable symptoms that are new to them. Each of them is seeking answers and a path to health. Our team takes the time we need to empathize and deeply understand our patients’ lives and the factors affecting their condition. Education is imperative to helping patients regain their quality of life. I strive to combine professionalism, advanced treatments and compassion to amplify our patient’s chance at a healthy, active life.

SPECIALTIES WHAT SERVICES DO YOU OFFER? I am an orthopaedic hand surgeon, taking care of wrist, hand, and finger problems ranging from pain, numbness, deformities, and/or accidental traumas. I treat common conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, locking trigger fingers, cysts, and arthritis. I treat most conditions with medications, injections, braces, and as a last resort, surgery. If surgery is required, many times it can be done in the office without the need to go to a hospital or surgery center.

To create the "top doctors" list, DataJoe Research facilitated an online peer-voting process, also referencing government sources. DataJoe then tallied the votes per category for each doctor to isolate the top nominees in each category. After collecting nominations and additional information, DataJoe checked and confirmed that each published winner had a current, active license status with the state regulatory board. If we were not able to find evidence of a doctor's current, active registration with the state regulatory board, that doctor was excluded from the list. In addition, any doctor who has been disciplined, up to the time-frame of our review process for an infraction by the state regulatory board, was excluded from the list. Finally, DataJoe presented the tallied result to the magazine for its final review and adjustments. Final Note We recognize that there are many good doctors who are not shown in this representative list. This is only a sampling of the huge array of talented professionals within the region. Inclusion in the list is based on the opinions of responding doctors in the region and the results of our research campaign. We take time and energy to ensure fair voting, although we understand that the results of this survey nomination are not an objective metric.

Vivian Torres, MD

HONOREE Vascular Surgery

HOW DOES YOUR PRACTICE IMPROVE THE LIFE OF YOUR PATIENTS? My philosophy of patient care is that the patient comes first. My ultimate goal is to improve their quality of life. It is important that I listen to the patient and learn what really matters to them in order to treat them appropriately. Everybody is different, what works for a patient with a particular problem may not work for a patient with the same or similar problem. My role is that of an educator foremost. With my base of knowledge, training, and craft, I aim to improve my patient’s quality of life by helping them feel well enough to enjoy doing the things that are important to them in life and by giving them the tools to live a longer, healthier life.
