Nicholson/Papapietro named to 2013 Best Doctors in America list

CULLMAN — Cullman Regional Medical Center’s Chairman of Radiology, Jeffrey K. Nicholson, MD has been named one of the Best Doctors in America for 2013. The prestigious recognition marks the second time that Dr. Nicholson has earned this honor.

Cullman Regional Medical Center’s Interventional Cardiologist, Silvio Papapietro has also been named one of the Best Doctors in America for 2013. This marks the seventh time that “Dr. Papa,” as most of his patients know him, has earned this honor.

The highly regarded Best Doctors in America List, assembled by Best Doctors, Inc. and audited and certified by Gallup results from exhaustive polling of over 45,000 physicians in the United States. In a confidential review, current physician listees answer the question, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?” Best Doctors, Inc. evaluates the review results, and verifies all additional information to meet detailed inclusion criteria.  

Best Doctors has earned a sterling reputation for reliable, impartial results by remaining totally independent. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the Best Doctors database, nor are they paid to provide their input. The List is a product of validated peer review, in which doctors who excel in their specialties are selected by their peers in the profession.

Over the past 20 years, Best Doctors has earned global acclaim for its remarkable database of physicians, regarded as the world’s premier effort to create a validated, peer-reviewed database of excellence in medicine. The Best Doctors methodology is rigorously impartial and strictly independent; only those doctors recognized as the top 5 percent of their respective specialty earn the honor of being named one of the Best Doctors in America. The experts who are a part of the Best Doctors in America database provide the most advanced medical expertise and knowledge to patients with serious conditions – often saving lives in the process by finding the right diagnosis and right treatment.

“Cullman Regional Medical Center and our community is very blessed to have talented medical staff members such as Dr. Nicholson and Dr. Papapietro,” CRMC President/CEO Jim Weidner said. “We are certainly proud of their accomplishments and proud to have them bringing their expertise to the people of Cullman.”
