Dr. Mark Fleckner Named "Top Doctor" in Ophthalmology

Mark Fleckner, MD, an ophthalmologist specializing in diseases of the retina, has been named a top eye doctor by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd.  The physicians listed in Castle Connolly "Top Doctors" books and on its website are nominated by their peers in an extensive survey process, according to the publisher. "Those doctors who are among the very best in their specialties and in their communities are selected for inclusion," according to the company's website. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be included in any Castle Connolly Guide or online directory.

"I'm honored to be among the select group of physicians named in this guide," said Dr. Fleckner, a board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in diseases such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. His impressive credentials include completion of a fellowship in Vitreoretinal Surgery at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, a Harvard Medical School affiliate.

In addition to his "Top Doctor" recognition, Dr. Fleckner was recently named to  "Super Doctors," a directory of outstanding physicians in various medical specialties published by MSP Communications. The list appears online and also came out in a special insert in The New York Times in May. Potential candidates are evaluated based on various indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement, including years of experience, hospital appointments, fellowships and professional activities, according to the publisher. Doctors do not pay to be in the directory.

Dr. Fleckner is a diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology and the National Board of Medical Examiners, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Medical Association. He is affiliated with Mercy Medical Center and Syosset Hospital. He has shared his expertise with other doctors, lecturing to medical groups on diabetic eye diseases, age-related macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and other topics.
