TOP Doc­tors

Focus of SWFL - - Fashion & Style - By Su­san Ben­nett

Six physi­cians with Physi­cians' Pri­mary Care of South­west Florida have been named among the “Top Doc­tors in Amer­ica” by Cas­tle Con­nolly Med­i­cal in New York. Fam­ily Medicine physi­cian Charles Cur­tis, M.D., and Ob­ste­tri­cian/Gyne­col­o­gists Heather Auld, M.D.; Paul Joslyn, M.D.; Ge­orge Ko­vace­vic, M.D.; Blaise Ko­vaz, M.D.; and Mary Yankaskas, M.D. will be hon­ored at an awards ban­quet. Drs. Auld and Yankaskas also were in­cluded in the 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012 lists as well. Dr. Ko­vace­vic is a re­peat win­ner from 2012. Selec­tions are made through a national sur­vey of physi­cians and hos­pi­tal ad­min­is­tra­tors con­ducted by Cas­tle Con­nolly Med­i­cal, an in­de­pen­dent re­search and in­for­ma­tion com­pany that is the na­tion's lead­ing provider of in­for­ma­tion on physi­cians. Af­ter the votes are tal­lied, Cas­tle Con­nolly en­sures that the physi­cians meet the com­pany's cri­te­ria, which in­clude board cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, years of ex­pe­ri­ence in their spe­cial­ties, and a clean dis­ci­plinary record. “Cas­tle- Con­nolly is widely rec­og­nized for its ex­ten­sive re­search of the med­i­cal pro­fes­sion. This demon­strates to our pa­tients that we have been eval­u­ated and meet their high­est stan­dards,” said Dr. Yankaskas, who also is man­ag­ing physi­cian of Physi­cians' Pri­mary Care of South­west Florida. Physi­cians' Pri­mary Care of South­west Florida, a physi­cianowned and op­er­ated med­i­cal prac­tice, was formed in 1996 by many long prac­tic­ing lo­cal physi­cians and has grown to be­come the largest in­de­pen­dent multi- spe­cialty prac­tice in South­west Florida with more than 45 med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als.

Med­i­cal spe­cial­ties in­clude in­ter­nal medicine, fam­ily prac­tice, ob­stet­rics, gyne­col­ogy, and pe­di­atrics. Ten of­fices are con­ve­niently lo­cated in Fort My­ers, Cape Coral and Le­high Acres.
