2022 Top Doctors There was a time, not long ago, when area residents traveled out of town seeking expertise for their complicated medical problems. Now, however, a cadre of top-of-the-line physicians who would be the envy of any community have made the Sarasota area their home. “We have worked hard to bring the best and the brightest to this community,” notes John Steele, M.D., a founding member of Intercoastal. “Our mission has always been to provide the highest quality health care. The success of Intercoastal is the result of quality and hard work by each of the physicians who make up the group.” Intercoastal Medical Group is proud of its physician colleagues who have been named by their peers for SRQ Top Docs.

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—it is their 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.

METHODOLOGY 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.

HONOREE Interventional Pain Management

DOUGLAS CONSTANT, MD

SPECIALTIES Interventional Treatments of the Neck and Spine Anesthesiology Pain Medicine TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR PRACTICE.

My practice is dynamic and cutting-edge allowing me to continually introduce new therapies and procedures which greatly improve my patients’ lives. I actively participate in clinical research and teach fellows, residents and medical students. Part of my duties include an invitation each year to teach at Harvard Medical School where I completed my pain management fellowship. During medical school, I also participated in clinical research at Harvard. Additionally, I have been appointed to the President’s Council and advise the U.S. Congress on matters pertaining to this nation’s healthcare policy. Bringing the most current therapies to my patients is my passion. HOW DOES YOUR PRACTICE HELP TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF YOUR PATIENTS? My practice

Dr. Constant provides compassionate and personalized care. While living on Siesta Key, he attended Pine View and has practiced in the Bradenton area for the last decade. Dr. Constant is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and the Tulane School of Medicine. He completed his anesthesiology residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) and was selected as chief resident. Afterwards, he completed his interventional pain fellowship at Harvard Medical School, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He specializes in cutting edge interventional treatments of the spine (cervical, thoracic and lumbar). He is a diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiology with certification in anesthesiology and pain medicine.

improves my patients’ lives in a wide variety of ways with the most up-to-date medical information and therapies. I use minimally invasive techniques to treat pain with targeted injections using ultrasound or fluoroscopy and with outpatient surgeries. My procedures can be office-based or performed in ambulatory surgery centers. Restoring function and improving the quality of life for my patients are my ultimate goals. Seeing my patients return to athletics, travel and normal routines is highly rewarding for me. This partnership with my patients in selecting the appropriate treatment is fundamental to returning their lives back to normal.

JONATHAN DATTILO, MD

SPECIALTIES Minimally-invasive anterior hip replacement Knee replacement, (partial and total) Computer Navigation Outpatient (same day) surgery TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR PRACTICE.

I believe in developing relationships with patients. I have an individualized discussion with each patient about how pain is affecting their life. I offer comprehensive management, including medications, injections, therapy, and surgery, and we discuss what is right for them. If they pursue surgery, my philosophy is like anything else in life, the more you prepare, the easier it is. We develop a personalized pain protocol and tailor the therapy to meet each person’s goals. Every aspect of care is scheduled so that when the patient returns home, the only thing they are focusing on is their new joint replacement. HOW DOES YOUR PRACTICE HELP TO IMPROVE THE LIVES OF YOUR PATIENTS? Hip and knee

Dr. Dattilo is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in minimally-invasive anterior total hip replacement and knee replacements. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, he pursued his medical degree at Johns Hopkins University. He then completed his orthopedic training at the University of Pennsylvania, followed by an additional year of sub-specialized training in Washington, DC before he was recruited to join the astounding team at Coastal Orthopedics. He continues his academic pursuits to offer his patients the best care. He has authored 50 publications and is currently using virtual reality to teach surgeons how to perform anterior hip replacements. Dr. Dattilo has published numerous articles on pain protocols to minimize narcotics after surgery. These efforts greatly assist him in offering world-class care to patients in Sarasota and Manatee counties.

replacements are extremely successful in improving the quality of a person’s life. It is an investment in yourself to return to the activities that you love. I ask every patient to pick an activity or a goal prior to surgery. After surgery, we individualize the therapy to ensure that we are moving forward in achieving that goal. The most rewarding part of my profession, which is truly humbling, is when people give me pictures of them hiking, biking or playing with their grandchildren because they are so excited that they have a new lease on life.

Shortly thereafter, he opened Cooper Family Medical in Bradenton, Florida. He is currently working as a hospitalist for the group at Manatee Memorial Hospital.

Cooper Family Medical was founded in 2004 by Drs. Christopher and Catherine Cooper as a "mom and pop" type of family practice. Dr. Andrew Clark joined shortly thereafter and is board certified in family practice and sports medicine. The practice has grown to 14 providers and a full-time ultrasound tech and treats patients from birth through the senior years. We have one location on SR 64 in Bradenton and have started the building process on another full size practice off of 301 in north Manatee County to provide comprehensive medical care to all our new neighbors moving into the Parrish and the North River Area.

VIRGINIA GOOD, MD SPECIALTIES Pediatrics TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF. Dr. Good

is board certified pediatrician. She was born and raised in Shreveport, LA. She went to Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge and played tennis for the LSU Tigers. After graduating and teaching tennis for 2 years, she returned to LSU for medical school and residency. She then spent several years in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit caring for critically ill children. Dr. Good and her family moved to Sarasota, Florida where she worked as a hospitalist before transitioning to primary care. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, The American Board of Pediatrics, and the Sarasota Medical Society.

Throughout her education and years of experience, Dr. Good has learned the importance of introducing healthy habits early on in a young patient's life and realizes sickness does not have office hours. She takes her own calls and is just a phone call away even when the office is closed. Dr. Good has three children and two Standard Poodles, "Annie" and "Benny". In her spare time, she loves to fish, read and spend time with her friends and family.

WHAT SETS YOUR PRACTICE APART? Grab your cape, princess dress, and wizard cloak before coming to Good Pediatrics, where as soon as you walk through our doors, you’ll be transported to a practice full of imagination and intricate decorations. The waiting room walls are adorned with display cases with antique toys, props, and a sixfoot tall Frozen castle. Newborns will be led to one of our 2 rooms we save just for our youngest patients. Everyone else will be led to one of our themed exam rooms which include our Star Wars room with action figures from the original 1977 movie. The superhero room is covered with collectable artwork from DC and Marvel, with a centerpiece created and autographed by Stan Lee. Our princess room is just as decorated with wall murals of lifesized Disney princesses. Hanging from the ceiling is a crystal chandelier so patients feel like they’re at a ball. All aboard 9 ¾! For the older wizards, there is a Harry Potter themed-room with hanging candles, a sorting hat, magic wands, and a fireplace.

HONOREE Internal Medicine

JOHN LOURIÉ, MD SPECIALTIES Cardiology: General and Interventional Internal Medicine Nuclear cardiology TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR PRACTICE.

Having witnessed the erosion of quality care in medicine and a push by corporate and insurance industries toward a one-size-fits-all care model known as "protocol-based care", I knew I could deliver better personal care. So in 2010, I developed our current concierge practice which places the focus on the personal needs of the patient: not the insurance company. Our contract is between the patient and the doctor so we have been able to develop relationships with radiology centers, labs, pharmacies and specialists, etc. which allow much quicker access to service when needed. This is frequently achieved at a much lower price than it would cost through an insurance company without all the typical built-in delays and denials that people have become forced to accept through the traditional medical practice. Our practice has been so successful that it has been full for over six years now.

Having lived in Charleston, SC as a child and then moving to the Midwest for high school, college and medical school, Dr. Lourié was always drawn back to the ocean. He graduated from DePauw University in Indiana in 1981 with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in biology with a minor in physics. He completed his internal medicine internship and residency at Emory University in Atlanta in 1992. He specialized in interventional cardiology and nuclear cardiology, graduating from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston in 1995 where he met his wife. They then moved to Bradenton in 1995. At age 32, Dr. Lourié was one of the youngest to be accepted as a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology in 1996. He has been board certified in internal medicine, cardiology, interventional cardiology and nuclear cardiology. He has served on the local board of the American Heart Association and the Manatee Medical Society as well as numerous medical committees at both Manatee Memorial and Blake hospitals. He was the director of the cardiac cath lab at Blake hospital for 12 years and was listed in Strathmore's Who's Who in America in 2000, named Doctor of the Year in 2004 and Consumers’ Research Council of America's Top Cardiologists in 2010.

WHAT SETS YOUR PRACTICE APART? We deliver what is now missing from most medical practices and certainly in hospital based care: excellent personal service, prompt appointments, and direct evaluation by your physician: not a nurse practitioner or physician's assistant. We personally coordinate priority appointments with specialists, imaging tests and perform advanced metabolic testing and cancer screening in-house. We routinely refer to the top medical centers in the US when someone's health depends on it. One of our primary goals is to keep people out of the hospital: and it works. We are focused on teaching people how to achieve and maintain health through lifestyle changes that have been proven to prevent strokes, heart attacks, diabetes, cancer and dementia.

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.

Over 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 Emsculpt Neo 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 IMPROVE THE LIVES OF YOUR PATIENTS? One result of living in the Sunshine State

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. Dr. Sax is now a dual board certified dermatologist and micrographic dermatologic surgeon.

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.

WHAT SETS YOUR PRACTICE APART? The team at The Roots

Neuropathy understands that nervous system health is directly correlated to an individual’s overall health and well-being and recognizes that the body is genetically programmed for health rather than sickness. It is our vision to educate the community about the self-healing and self-regulating human frame provided there is no interference of neurological communication. By balancing the nervous system’s performance, we normalize communication between the brain and the body through state-of-the art neuropathy treatments. It is through this optimization of function and communication that individuals can realize their potential for optimal health and wellness. We address the root cause of the pain and help the body, nerves, blood vessels and tissue stop breaking down and start healing naturally without surgery. Typical healthcare approaches neuropathy pain by using invasive procedures to mask the symptoms while we get to the root cause of the pain. With the most advanced natural approach at reversing neuropathy symptoms we are able to provide independence and a quality of life we are all wanting.

HOW DOES YOUR PRACTICE HELP IMPROVE THE LIVES OF YOUR PATIENTS? It is our desire to empower individuals with

They are led by their core values: integrity, communication, community, commitment, and faith. The goal of the doctors at The Roots Neuropathy is to serve the Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch and surrounding communities at the highest level of healthcare excellence. They aim to empower individuals with better health strategies through completely natural, drug-free health care that allows the body to heal itself and help people at any age achieve their God given health potential and obtain a life full of optimal health. Dr. Logan is board certified in neuropathy by the American College of Physical Medicine. Drs. Logan and Laura were drawn to Sarasota & the Lakewood Ranch area and knew this was a community in need of natural health solutions. Since the inception of The Roots Health Centers, Drs. Logan and Laura continually strive to give back and be active in the community. The driving force behind every interaction is to be a community leader in natural health options for those looking for hope and healing.

better health strategies through completely natural, drug-free health care that allows the body to heal itself and help people at any age achieve their God given health potential and obtain a life full of optimal health. Neuropathy is a very complicated condition and at The Roots Neuropathy, we focus on improving the patient’s quality of life. Every patient is given a personal consultation to truly understand how their lives are being interrupted and a complete neurological evaluation by one of our health providers to pinpoint the amount of damage they have sustained. Many patients who come to us have taken pain medication to relieve their neuropathy symptoms and were not able to achieve the long term results they are looking for from previous treatment. At The Roots Health Centers it is our goal to get the problem fixed so that they no longer need pain medication and can return to living a life free from neuropathy. We strive to help our patients regain their independence so they can once again enjoy the activities they used to enjoy. We strive to make each recommendation individualized in order to fit the needs of every patient ensuring the highest success rate.

WHAT SETS YOUR PRACTICE APART? First of all, the

most important thing I try to keep in mind is that patients come to see me for a solution to a problem. My goal is to get to the root cause and not just treat it with pills. I get to the root by listening/investigating first and giving the patient the option to treat their problem with medications/procedures or lifestyle modification. Giving a solution to a problem is what brings me great satisfaction. Treating my patients as if they were my own family is always a goal. Making a difference in people's lives is what gives me a reason to wake in the mornings. It's that simple–nothing more and nothing less is what I offer.

REBECCA S. COHEN, MD HONOREE

Psychiatry SPECIALTIES Adult Psychiatry Psychopharmacology Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

WHAT SETS YOUR PRACTICE APART? I have always approached patient care with the idea of recognizing the complex biological, psychological and situational impact of each person’s presentation. Psychiatric symptoms are the most complicated of any medical specialty, because they potentially impact who you are and how you feel about yourself. My goal with patients is to help them understand their psychiatric symptoms and conflicts, and to work collaboratively with them to improve overall health and well-being. In over a decade of private clinical practice, I have worked with patients in both acute crisis situations as well as with more chronic, debilitating symptoms or difficulties. For some patients, seeking out care can be upsetting or difficult. My goal is to establish a safe and nurturing environment so we can do the work together, establish clear goals for a treatment plan and take proper care of the patient’s needs.

METHODOLOGY 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.
