Five UPMC docs make Top Docs list all eight years

With the release of the May issue of Pittsburgh Magazine, five UPMC physicians share the distinction of being named in eight consecutive “Top Doctors” lists published by the magazine. They are among a group of 103 UPMC and UPMC-affiliated physicians who comprise 78 percent of this year’s list.

The five who have been honored on every list are William Follansbee, cardiology; Freddie Fu, orthopaedic surgery; L. Dade Lunsford, neurological surgery; Fred Rubin, geriatric medicine, and John Zitelli, dermatology.

In 30 of the 48 categories, UPMC doctors are the only ones named, while at least one UPMC physician was included in each specialty category.

The listing was compiled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., whose physician-led research team follows a screening process to select top doctors on the national and regional levels.
