**Congratulations to Dr. Saud A. Sadiq on his inclusion in Castle Connolly's 2016, "America's Top Doctors" as well as New York Magazine's Best Doctors Issue. He is listed in the field of neurology. The mission of Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. is to help consumers find the best healthcare. To this end, they publish a variety of books including the "Top Doctors" series, the most popular of which is America's Top Doctors®. The top doctors who are listed in their books and on their website's directory were nominated by their peers in an extensive survey process of thousands of American doctors each year. These Top Doctors' medical educations, training, hospital appointments, disciplinary histories - and much more - are screened by the Castle Connolly physician-led research team. Those doctors who are among the very best in their specialties and in their communities are selected for inclusion. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be included in any Castle Connolly Guide or online directory.www.castleconnolly.com. New York Magazine requires licensed physicians vote online for those doctors they view as exceptional. Participating physicians are asked to nominate those doctors who, in their judgment, are the best in their field and related fields, taking into account not only professional qualifications and reputation (education, residency, board certification, hospital appointment, and disciplinary record, for example) but also skills in dealing with patients (listening and communicating effectively, demonstrating empathy, instilling trust and confidence).
