TAMPA BAY, Fla., Oct. 4, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to Health-U.S. News, the Top Doctors list was developed in collaboration with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., publisher of America's Top Doctors® and other guides, and was built upon data from Castle Connolly's Top Doctors™. Castle Connolly, a New York City-based company, has worked for nearly two decades to identify the nation's top doctors. Castle Connolly bases its Top Doctors selections on nominations submitted by other doctors and reviewed by its physician-led research team.
The goals of the new project are twofold. First, to help consumers find the doctors who can best address their needs. That's why Top Doctors are identified by location and by hospital affiliation, across a wide range of specialties and sub-specialties and for over 2,000 diseases, medical issues, and procedures.
Second, to enlist doctors across the country in sharing their awareness of who among their peers are the most worthy of referral. Their collective wisdom, available at usnews.com, will contribute to a growing knowledge base that extends and complements doctors' longstanding tradition of seeking recommendations from a convenient sample of their trusted colleagues.
Dr. Joseph W. Aguiar is a board certified plastic surgeon. Over his 16 year career, he has been published in peer-reviewed medical journals on a variety of plastic and reconstructive surgery topics. He has also completed fellowships and educational seminars in plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery, hand & microvascular surgery, maxillofacial trauma and reconstruction, and rhinoplasty.
Dr. Aguiar earned his medical degree at the University of Iowa's College of Medicine in 1991, completed his General Surgery residency at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, his Plastic Surgery residency at Indiana University Medical Center, and his Hand Surgery residency at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

Perhaps an even greater compliment than being named on the Top Doctors list, is when a physician receives the respect of their peers. Many doctors seek out Doctor Aguiar when they need plastic surgery for themselves and their families.
