Atlanta Magazine recently announced that a total of seven Cherokee County doctors received the honor of being named among the list of Atlanta’s Top Doctors in their July issue.

Six Georgia Urology physicians located in Cherokee County offices and one Canton physician from Atlanta Allergy and Asthma were awarded this honor. A total of 20 Georgia Urology physicians were selected among Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors, and a total of nine physicians were selected from Atlanta Allergy and Asthma. 

The six Georgia Urology physicians located in Cherokee County that were honored include Dr. Charles Kaplan, Dr. James Elmore, and Dr. Shaya Taghechian of the Woodstock office, Dr. Carl Capelouto of both the Woodstock and Canton offices, and Dr. Froylan Gonzalez and Dr. Joel Rosenfeld of the Canton office. The lone Cherokee County honoree from Atlanta Allergy and Asthma was Dr. Erinn Gardner, who also practices at the Douglasville office. A couple of physicians shared their thoughts on receiving this prestigious honor.

Atlanta magazine uses a database of top doctors compiled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., an established healthcare research company based in New York, to assist in its annual effort. Doctors are nominated for consideration through both a nationwide survey and a peer nomination process. Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers then select the Top Doctors through a rigorous screening process that includes an evaluation of educational and professional experience. This year the publication honors 1,002 of these physicians representing the following counties: Fulton, Cobb, Dekalb, Gwinnett, Hall, Forsyth, Cherokee, and Rockdale.
