Meridian Health Physicians Named in Newsweek Health “Top Cancer Doctors 2015”

Newsweek, in conjunction with Castle Connolly Medical LTD, the well-respected publisher of America's Top Doctors®, has included several Meridian physicians in the list of the “Top Cancer Doctors 2015 ” for the United States.

Meridian Health physicians who made the list include: Denise Johnson Miller, M.D., FACS, who specializes in breast surgery; John Gibbs, M.D., who specializes in gastrointestinal surgery, and Peter Staats, M.D., a pain medicine specialist.

These doctors were part of an elite list that was compiled through peer nominations and extensive research that Castle Connolly Medical LTD. has conducted for more than two decades. Each year, Castle Connolly receives nearly 100,000 nominations which are then narrowed down to 2,600 cancer specialists across the country to be a part of the Newsweek “Top Cancer Doctors 2015” list.
