Thirty Fox Chase physicians representing a range of specialties are highlighted in Philadelphia magazine’s annual “Top Doctors” issue, published in May. The list is designed to serve as a guide to expert medical care in the Philadelphia region.
Featured doctors were selected through a national survey of professional peers, with nominees screened by physician-led research teams based on criteria such as education and experience. One in four of the Center’s physicians are included.
Two Fox Chase physicians also appear in the section “Physicians, Healing Themselves,” which details the health and fitness habits of featured doctors: surgeons Andrew A. Gumbs, a cyclist, and John A. Ridge, who fences. “You can trace the demise of civilizations to sugar,” says Gumbs, who advocates a diet free of sugar and processed food.
