It’s always an honor to earn professional recognition. It reflects the dedication of my staff and our continual drive to provide patients with the best care possible. I feel especially gratified by my recent selection for the exclusive Castle Connolly Top Doctors list, which recognizes leading plastic surgeons in Naples and around the nation. Here’s what it means to be a Top Doctor.
How Top Docs Are Chosen
To earn a spot on the Castle Connolly list, a doctor must be nominated by peer physicians. Each year, tens of thousands of doctors in many different specialties are nominated. A physician-led research team then culls the list by talking to leading specialists and clinical department chairs, and by thoroughly scrutinizing a candidate’s medical education, training, professional achievements, and other information. Ultimately, fewer than 5 percent of the nation’s qualified physicians are included on the Top Doctors list.
A Daily Commitment
Professional honors and awards aren’t trophies gathering dust on a shelf. They are daily reminders that as a physician, I took an oath to provide each and every patient with excellent medical care. As I have said before, plastic surgery is more than a profession to me — it’s personal.
And your choice as a patient to improve your appearance is personal. Each individual who comes to Kent V. Hasen, MD, PA – Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Naples has unique goals and reasons for seeking cosmetic enhancement. Whether you’re visiting our medical spa for a facial or undergoing breast augmentation, you too can look to the honors I’ve received as a reminder of my commitment to your care.
