Lawrence Memorial Hospital and Westerly Hospital Physicians Named Top Docs

Monday, May 1, 2023

NEW LONDON, CT/ WESERLY, RI (May 1, 2023) Lawrence + Memorial Hospital and Westerly Hospital affiliated physicians have been named among the “Top Docs” in Connecticut and RI Monthly magazines’ annual survey reported in the May 2023 issues. 

Oliver Mayorga, MD, chief medical officer, said the annual roster of the top physicians is always a chance to acknowledge the fine work of the hospital medical staff. 

“Each year, it’s a source of pride to see so many of our doctors represented on the list,” he said. “We commend this year’s honorees. These outstanding doctors are examples of what I believe all our employees strive to give our patients – quality care and excellence.”

The Connecticut “Top Docs’ list is compiled each year after the magazine sends out 5,000 questionnaires to physicians across Connecticut asking them to name specialists they’d send a loved one to for expert care. The top vote-getters make up the final list. 

The RI Monthly “Top Doc” list highlights physicians from myriad specialties such as neurosurgery, cardiology, gynecological oncology, emergency care and infectious diseases. Those named as "Top Docs" were nominated and voted on by their peers.
