Sarasota, Florida – March 17, 2015 – Hillstrom Facial Plastic Surgery, a practice dedicated to the aesthetic enhancement of every patient, is pleased to announce that Dr. Robert Hillstrom was recently recognized by two national peer review organizations. For the nineteenth consecutive year (since 1995), Dr. Hillstrom was voted one of the "Best Doctors in America" in a peer review survey of more than 30,000 physicians. Additionally, Dr. Hillstrom was chosen as one of the area's "Top Doctors" by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. This marks the fourth consecutive year that Dr. Hillstrom has earned this esteemed recognition. "I am proud to be named alongside some of the nation's most respected physicians," said Dr. Robert Hillstrom. "To once again receive these honors stands as a reflection of our steadfast commitment to delivering the very best in patient care and results."

Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. is a trusted and highly regarded healthcare research and information company that identifies top doctors in America and provides consumers with detailed information about physicians. To be selected, board-certified physicians nominate other doctors in varying areas of medicine they feel are the most outstanding in their medical specialties. The physician-led team then carefully reviews the credentials of every physician, including medical education, training, board certifications, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements and malpractice and disciplinary history, among other factors. This group, along with other key personnel, makes the final determination on which doctors will be included in the list.

Regional Top Doctors are considered to be among the top 10 to 15 percent of physicians in the nation, and are the proven leaders in their communities and metropolitan areas. Fewer than 35,000 physicians – less than five percent of the nation's licensed physicians – have been selected as Castle Connolly Medical Ltd Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties. Doctors cannot pay to be included on a Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. Top Doctors list, and those who provide their input are not compensated.
