Twenty-One Georgia Urology Physicians Receive Top Doctors Honors

Congratulations to Georgia Urology’s twenty-one physicians who were ranked among Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors! All of these professionals are recognized as Atlanta’s Top Doctors in Atlanta magazine’s July issue. Georgia Urology represents more than 40 percent of the physicians in the urology category and all of the physicians in the pediatric urology category come from our practice. 

Those physicians are: Drs. Roosevelt Allen, David Banks, Carl Capelouto, Darrell Carmen, Bert Chen, Walter Falconer, Allen Futral, Lawrence Goldstone, Froylan Gonzalez, Mark Haber, Charles Kaplan, Andrew Kirsch, A. Keith Levinson, Jeffrey Proctor, Joel Rosenfeld, Hal Scherz, Brent Sharpe, Fred Shessel, Edwin Smith, Shaya Taghechian, and Barry Zisholtz. These doctors represent nearly 50 percent of Georgia Urology’s practice. 

Atlanta magazine uses a database of top doctors compiled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., an established healthcare research company based in New York, to assist in its annual effort. This year, the publication honors 860 physicians. Doctors are nominated for consideration through both a nationwide survey and a peer nomination process open to licensed physicians in Carroll, Cherokee, Clayton, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, and Rockdale counties. Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers then select the Top Doctors through a rigorous screening process that includes an evaluation of educational and professional experience. 

According to Dr. Hal Scherz, managing partner of Georgia Urology, having a highly skilled and reputable staff affirms the practice’s longstanding mission.

“Curating and retaining a dream team of physicians to provide the best level of care to our patients continues to be a goal for Georgia Urology,” said Dr. Scherz, who was honored along with the rest of the doctors at the recent 2019 Atlanta magazine Top Doctors Reception at Atlanta History Center. “Receiving this type of honor is not only humbling, but confirms we’re reaching that objective.”
