HYANNIS, Mass. and LAWRENCE, Mass., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Dr. Drasko Simovic, medical director of the EMG Laboratory, was selected by his peers as an outstanding doctor in Boston area. After an extensive nomination and research process conducted by Key Professional Media, Inc., the results were published in BostonSuper Doctors®, a special section in the September 2013 issue of The New York Times Magazine®.

Each year Key Professional Media invites doctors to nominate colleagues they know to be exceptional in their specified field. Physicians are asked to consider the following question: "If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?" The research staff also contributes to the pool of candidates by searching medical databases, online sources, and publications for doctors who have attained certain credentials, honors or professional achievements.

Candidates are evaluated on many indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. Years of experience, hospital appointments, fellowships, leadership positions, academic achievements/positions, board certifications, publications, honors and awards and other outstanding achievement are all taken into account. This is followed by a "Blue Ribbon" panel review, and a final selection scrutiny that leads to only the highest-scoring doctors to be included on the Super Doctors list.

"I am very grateful that my colleagues have nominated me and that they have confidence in our services. Our focus is to provide the highest level of Electrodiagnostic Medicine, assisting our referring physicians in establishing accurate diagnosis by performing an EMG test, which in turn allows for a selection of the best course of treatment for their patients," said Dr. Simovic. "It is a great professional achievement for me to earn my colleagues' trust, and I am honored that they feel comfortable in my diagnostic abilities even if they personally needed neurodiagnostic testing".

Dr. Simovic has completed his neurology residency at Boston University, followed by two fellowships in Electrodiagnostic Medicine and Clinical Neurophysiology at St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Boston, Tufts University School of Medicine. He is Board Certified in Neurology, Clinical Neurophysiology, Electrodiagnostic Medicine and Disability Analysis. His clinical and research achievements have been published in national and international scientific and popular media. Dr. Simovic has also been honored by numerous Patient's Choice Awards®.
