(201) Family, a New Jersey Greater Media magazine, featured Top Doctors in its special double issue (November/December, 2015). Physicians are nominated by their peers and are evaluated on several criteria, including professional achievement, peer recognition and disciplinary history.

Among their recognized achievements, Dr. Winikoff and Dr. Chan played an active role as members of a team of 13 doctors and nurses who performed New Jersey's first separation of Siamese twins in 2000. In addition to their contributions to communities within New Jersey, Dr. Winikoff and Dr. Chan also partner with charitable organizations including Healing the Children and Gift of Life to bring health care to people in underserved areas abroad.

"It is an honor to have been selected by our peers for inclusion in the 2015 (201) Family Top Doctors list," said Dr. Winikoff. "Dr. Chan and I are delighted to be continually recognized for the compassionate care we have provided to our patients and their families."

Stephen P. Winikoff, MD, serves as Chief of Anesthesia at St. Joseph's Medical Center in Paterson, NJ. He also holds the appointment of Associate Clinical Professor of Anesthesia at Touro-New York Medical School in Westchester, NY, and serves as the Secretary of the New Jersey State Society of Anesthesiologists Executive Committee. Dr. Winikoff is a Diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiology as well as the American Board of Pediatrics.

Kar-Mei Chan, MD, serves as the Chief of Pediatric Cardiac Anesthesia at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson, NJ.

(201) Family Top Doctors are administered by MSP Communications, a leading researcher and publisher of Super Doctors. The local, peer-nominated award selects doctors from 30 specialties ranging from anesthesiology to vascular surgery. Professionals with the highest scores from each grouping are invited to serve on a blue ribbon panel and asked to evaluate the candidates in their specialty.
