As one of the best hair transplant doctors in NYC, Dr. Wolfeld is proud to be named a Top Doctor in New York by Castle Connolly for 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021. Below is a description of the Top Doctor award from Castle Connolly.

The mission of Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. is to help consumers find the best healthcare. To this end, we 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 our books and on this 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. Many national and regional magazines have featured Castle Connolly guides to America's Top Doctors® and/or Doctor Connolly in stories. Magazine coverage of "Top Doctors in America" has included:

  • Fortune
  • Town & Country
  • Good Housekeeping
  • Redbook
  • Money Magazine
  • New York Magazine
  • Philadelphia
  • Boston
  • Chicago Magazine
  • Atlanta Magazine
  • And many others

Super Doctors

Dr. Wolfeld is proud to be named a Super Doctor in New York from 2014-2021. This is a distinguished list published annually in the New York Times. Please see below for description from Super Doctors. The selection process for Super Doctors is a rigorous multi-step process designed to identify healthcare providers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Super Doctors is a selective yet diverse listing of outstanding doctors, representing consumer-oriented medical specialties. First, we create a pool of candidates. Each year Super Doctors invites doctors to nominate colleagues they know to be exceptional in their specified field. They are asked to consider the following question: "If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?" Numerous safeguards are in place to prevent ballot manipulation and doctors may not self-nominate.

Our research staff also contributes to the pool of candidates by searching medical databases, online sources, and publications for providers who have attained certain credentials, honors or professional achievements - what we term 'Star Search Credentials.' This process also includes doctors in less visible or highly specialized medical treatment areas.

We evaluate candidates on 10 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.

  • Years of experience
  • Hospital appointments
  • Fellowships
  • Professional activities
  • Academic achievements/positions
  • Leadership positions
  • Board certifications
  • Publications, lectures & presentations
  • Honors and awards
  • Other outstanding achievement

The last step is to total the points received from nominations, research, and blue ribbon panel review. Only the highest-scoring doctors are included on the Super Doctors list. The Super Doctors list is approximately 5% of the doctors within the respective state or region.

10 Best List

As a best hair doctor in NYC, Dr. Wolfeld is proud to be named on the 10 Best List of Plastic Surgeons for 2018 - 2021 by the American Institute of Plastic Surgery. Please see below for a description from AI Plastic Surgeons.

The American Institute of Plastic Surgeons recognizes excellence of practitioners in the field. We compile an exclusive list of the “10 Best” Plastic Surgeons for each State. This is a prestigious honor for the Plastic Surgeon as each Plastic Surgeon must:

  • Be formally nominated by the Institute, patients, and/or a fellow Plastic Surgeon;
  • Have attained the highest degree of professional achievement in his or her field;
  • And having done so with an impeccable Patient Satisfaction rating.

Many Plastic Surgeons can achieve high degrees of success but this is often times at the expense or satisfaction of the most important person in the case- the patient. American Institute of Plastic Surgeons looks for Plastic Surgeons that have achieved unparalleled success but most importantly have done so for the benefit of their patient. Very few Plastic Surgeons can do so and our organization recognizes this significant achievement.

Our rating system helps patients throughout the United States make educated decisions when it comes to choosing their Plastic Surgeon. Membership is an exclusive honor and extended only to those select few who have reached the top of their profession while doing so with the patient’s satisfaction being of the most paramount importance.
