A handful of local physicians were named among the best doctors in the state for the second year in a row.
Best Doctors, Inc., a Boston-based group, chose five physicians from Gastroenterology Associates, P.A., for the North Carolina list, according to a press release from the medical practice’s Hickory office.
Doctors are picked based on polls from fellow doctors. The goal of the peer-to-peer survey is to determine “top achievers in their field or specialty,” the release said.
With a total of 41 individuals named to the prestigious North Carolina group, Gastroenterology Associates celebrated the most physicians from a private gastroenterology practice, the release said.
The doctors, who were also each published in Business North Carolina’s December issue and are board certified in gastroenterology, included Carroll Koscheski, M.D., FACG, John Meier, M.D., FACG, Frank Wright, M.D., FACG, Simon Allport, M.D., and Gregory Diamonti, M.D.
Each of the honored physicians works out of the practice’s Lincolnton office on East Gaston Street and the Hickory office on North Center Street.
They also care for patients residing in Carolinas Medical Center-Lincoln in Lincolnton and Frye Regional Medical Center and Catawba Valley Medical Center, both in Hickory.
