MELVILLE, NY--(Marketwired - May 10, 2016) - North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA), is proud to announce its CEO, John F. Di Capua, MD, has been recognized as a top doctor to the New York Super Doctors® list for the second consecutive year. The award is based on peer recognition and professional achievement in the field of anesthesiology. In addition, NAPA anesthesiologists Jeremy Asnis, MD and Seth Passo, MD were named as Rising Stars on the 2016 Super Doctors roster for their noteworthy accomplishments. The honorees will be recognized in the New York Times Magazine in its Sunday, May 15, 2016 issue.

"On behalf of my colleagues and myself, it is an honor to be recognized by our peers for this esteemed award," said Dr. Di Capua. "Working alongside a team of equally talented, dedicated clinicians enables us to excel and succeed as we collectively strive to enhance the quality of care and experience provided to our patients."

The annual "Super Doctors" list honors top physicians in over 40 medical specialties ranging from allergy to urology through an independent research and objective evaluation process. The award sponsor, MSP Communications, follows a rigorous selection process that includes a survey of doctors, independent evaluation of candidates by the research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area and a good standing and disciplinary check. Each year, only five percent of practicing doctors per region receive the prestigious Super Doctors award, while no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list. To be eligible for inclusion in Rising Stars, candidates must be active physicians who have been fully licensed to practice for approximately 10 years or less.
