METHODOLOGY

TOP DOCTORS

We are deeply grateful to the medical and nursing professionals who are dedicated to supporting our community through this challenging time. The individuals who are being honored in this year's prestigious SRQ TOP DOCTORS | PEER REVIEW program have received the overwhelming support of colleagues in the medical professional communities of Greater Sarasota including Palmetto and Palmetto Bay, Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, Venice and North Port, Florida. The Colorado-based team at DataJoe Research facilitates all aspects of the online peer-voting process and conducting government references. We appreciate the doctors who participated in the program this past summer by sharing their thoughtful nominations, which this year include Exceptional Nurses—it is your insight that makes it possible for us to provide the readers of SRQ Magazine with this noteworthy guide to the highly-regarded doctors in the region.

SUMMARY DataJoe Research is a software and research company specializing in data collection and verification, and conducts various nominations across the United States on behalf of publishers. 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. We certainly do not discount the fact that many, many good and effective doctors may not appear on the list.

While there he served one year as Chief Internal Medicine resident. From there Dr. Kahane knew he wanted to remain in the Bradenton area and help impact this community. He founded Complete Care in July 2019 and since then has been leading the charge to improve the lives of his patients.

Ann Neff MD

ABOUT THE PRACTICE 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! Before joining our practice, Dr. Neff's experiences in academia, allowed her to see some of the most difficult and hard-to-treat cases. She served on faculty at the University of Cincinnati Department of Dermatology performing dermatology and Mohs surgery and practiced oculoplastic surgery at the prestigious, world renowned, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami. When not working, Dr. Neff enjoys spending me with her husband, Guy and three children, Adam, Katie and Isabella who are all actively involved in tennis. She also enjoys watching tennis, running and reading. Dr. Neff's knowledge base, surgical skills and calm, personable nature make her loved by colleagues, staff and patients. She is a true expert in the field of dermatology and is committed to providing superior dermatologic care to all of her patients while maintaining a friendly and warm environment.

HONOREE Dermatology

Ann Neff, M.D. has been a respected and valuable member of Dermatology Associates since 2010. Her background and expertise is unparalleled, making her one of the most sought after Mohs surgeons in the region. Dr. Neff's training is very unique in that she has completed two residency training programs and two fellowship training programs, which combined give her knowledge and skill rarely seen by most dermatologists and Mohs surgeons, especially related to skin cancers and growths around the eye region. She is Dermatology Associates' trusted Mohs surgeon and works closely with all of our providers to perform the skin cancer treatments that require this specialized skill at both our Sarasota and Bradenton locations. In addition, Dr. Neff offers general dermatologic care, especially to those patients at high risk for multiple cutaneous malignancies.

John A. Galat MD

HONOREE Cardiovascular Surgery

Originally from Mansfield, Ohio, John A. Galat, M.D., came to Florida in 1993 where he joined the Ocala Heart Institute after finishing his training at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. While in Ocala, he was instrumental in establishing many cardiac surgical programs in Florida and throughout the world, including China, Mongolia, Albania and Kenya. In 2002 he launched the cardiovascular surgery program at Venice Regional Bayfront Health. In 2018 he returned to Venice as a full-time cardiothoracic surgeon to build on the hospital’s multidisciplinary cardiac surgical program. He is employed by Gulf Coast HMA Physician Management, LLC, d/b/a Gulf Coast Medical Group.

WHAT SETS YOUR PRACTICE APART?

A key difference in our practice is that many of our team members are solely dedicated to heart surgery patients. Our anesthesiologist only works with our surgical team and then provides critical care management for our patients after surgery. Our patients and their families also benefit from having nurses who are dedicated to the heart team before, during and after surgery. This continuity of care is rare among heart programs, and I believe it is a key reason for our patients’ positive outcomes.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE RECOGNIZED BY YOUR PEERS FOR SRQ TOP DOCTOR?

Being recognized by my peers is an honor I share with the entire heart team at Venice Regional Bayfront Health. Everyone is an expert in their role, from educating patients before and after surgery, to providing advanced surgical procedures by highly experienced surgeons, and delivering outstanding nursing care from nurses who are dedicated solely to heart surgery patients. Our anesthesiologist likewise is dedicated to our team and provides continuity of care from surgery through recovery. Many of the nurses, anesthesia and surgical technicians have worked with us since the inception of the program.

ABOUT THE PRACTICE At The Beauty and Wellness Institute, Dr. Chapman offers Functional Medicine and Aesthetics services to help women feel beautiful inside and out.

Trained in Aesthetics, she also offers non-surgical cosmetic procedures including Botox, Fillers, Kybella, HIFU for skin tightening and targeted fat reduction, Vaginal Rejuvenation, Laser Hair Removal, and more. WHAT SETS YOUR PRACTICE APART?

I understand women. We have more on our plates than ever before. We’re taking care of the home, children, our parents, running businesses, supporting our friends, and so much more. It can become overwhelming. So at The Beauty and Wellness Institute, I strive to hold a space for women to slow down. Whether a woman comes in with health concerns or she is seeking help with physical features, she should leave feeling confident and cared for. I also try to simplify Functional Medicine for my patients. I hear too often that they have been recommended a multitude of expensive supplements but don’t know what any of them do. Women’s lives are complicated enough, if we can keep things simple, we can create lasting change.

Alberico J. Sessa MD

WHAT SETS YOUR PRACTICE APART?

Sarasota Surgical Arts, the name says it all! This is where surgical excellence, safety, and art collide. Alberico Sessa, MD is an artist. An expert in Cosmetic Surgery. An expert is defined as 10,000 hours performing a task. After 14 years and 7000+ cosmetic procedures completed at his surgical facility – I would say Dr. Sessa is an expert. It's all in the training.

HONOREE Cosmetic Surgery

Dr. Sessa started his career in Dental school, where he learned that a tenth of a millimeter can make all the difference. He then went to medical school and onto Oral and Maxillofacial surgery at Charity Hospital in New Orleans for six years. This is were he learned to take apart the bony structures of the head and face and put them back together better than before. The training culminated in a year long post-graduate fellowship in Cosmetic Surgery of the face and body. This is where it all came together. It was at this fellowship, that every day, he along side his mentor performed cosmetic surgery in a private facility. Under this tutelage, he was able to hone his skills performing complex breast, tummy, face, and nasal surgery. This expertise allowed him to come to Sarasota in 2007 and begin practicing at the highest level immediately. Thousands of surgeries completed, five patient choice awards, hundreds of 5-star reviews across multiple platforms, and Thousands of thrilled patients. He is a diplomate of Both the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery as well as the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Fellowship director, and American Board of Cosmetic Surgery Board examiner for the past four years.

Alberico Sessa, MD, is a perfectionist. The surgery is never completed until it is perfect. The first questions asked at a consultation are to find out exactly what is the patient’s idea of beauty and what they are concerned about. Then the journey begins. Sarasota Surgical Arts provides an array of Cosmetic surgery to help the Breast, Body, or the Face. Some of the procedures performed: facelift, breast Augmentation, Tummy tuck, Breast lift, Breast reduction, liposuction, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, Laser skin resurfacing. Non surgical options are also found at Sarasota Surgical Arts: Venus freeze —a skin-tightening procedure that works. Vanquish is an all-in-one treatment to dissolve fat and tighten skin, both painless and inexpensive. A medi-spa, along with a knowledgeable aesthetician, is also onsite.

David S. Sax

HONOREE Dermatology

Dr. Sax brings an impressive level of education and experience to his patients. He is a board-certified dermatologist and a Phi Beta Kappa honors graduate of Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Molecular Cell Biology and Computer Science. Dr. Sax graduated from Thomas Jefferson University Medical College, completed his dermatology residency at the University of Michigan, and trained an additional year in Mohs surgery for skin cancer treatment in Columbus, Ohio.

MD

TELL US ABOUT YOUR PRACTICE. WHAT SETS YOU APART? Almost 20 years ago, David S.

Sax, M.D. founded University Park Dermatology & Medical Spa. His vision then was to create a comprehensive dermatology practice providing a welcoming, “family feel” while offering exceptional and personalized service. Dr. Sax has brought that vision to life by combining leading edge technologies and tailoring it with highly individualized attention to each patients’ specific needs. One of the main goals when forming my practice was to create a comprehensive skin care center; a single destination for the entire family. At University Park Dermatology, we combine the best of both medical and cosmetics, allowing us to holistically address all of our patient’s needs. Our medical team utilizes the most effective treatments against skin cancers, including an in-house lab performing outpatient Mohs surgery. Within the same office, our ultramodern medspa offers an array of solutions to improve virtually all aspects of our patient’s skincare needs; from lasers, injectables and CoolSculpting to our exceptional aesthetician services and medical grade skincare lines. However, it is my staff that truly sets us apart, creating the warm and inviting environment that is our trademark.

HOW DOES YOUR PRACTICE HELP TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF YOUR PATIENTS? One

result of living in the Sunshine State is that there is an overabundance of skin cancers. Fortunately, when detected early, most can be successfully treated in the office. One of the most effective treatments for skin cancers is the Mohs surgical technique. During Mohs surgery, thin layers of cancer-containing skin are removed and then examined until only cancer-free tissue remains. Having undergone extensive Mohs surgical training allows me to perform this precision surgical technique while meticulously minimizing scarring. Over the past twenty years, our office has treated over ten thousand skin cancers. I feel exceptionally fortunate to continue to help patients with skin cancer treatment and prevention.

The physicians at 360 ORTHOPEDICS have a total of over 140 years of experience in the medical field providing treatment from “head to toe” with the most up-to-date technology. Our locations are self-contained so that you may have all your orthopedic visits at one location, and even in one visit!

We are unique in our ability to offer same day or next day appointments for our patients when needed.

I received a B.S. in Biology at DeSales University and my medical degree at Temple University Medical School. That was followed with an orthopedic residency at Penn State University and a fellowship in hand and wrist at the University of Pittsburgh. As an advocate for personalized care, I’ve always treated patients as family members. I talk to them about their challenges, offer the best possible solutions, and together, we come to a consensus as to the best treatment for their situation. I’m trained in the latest techniques for hand and wrist conditions and strongly believe in staying involved in all aspects of patient care from initial diagnosis to post-operative rehabilitation.

David Chan MD

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. Sometimes people allow themselves to suffer from longstanding problems with their hands and don't know that they can be easily fixed, sometimes even without a stitch!

Derek Cuff MD

ABOUT THE PRACTICE Dr. Cuff specializes in performing minimally invasive arthroscopic procedures as well as complex shoulder and elbow reconstruction. He utilizes state of the art surgical techniques to treat the full spectrum of shoulder and elbow problems. Dr. Cuff has been inducted into the prestigious American Shoulder & Elbow Surgeons (ASES) society. He is one of a small group of surgeons in the state of Florida to be given this honor, and he is the only surgeon in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, Lee or Collier counties to achieve Active Member status in this organization. Dr. Cuff has a strong interest in clinical and basic science research of the shoulder and elbow. He has published multiple articles in peer reviewed international journals on these topics.
