COVINA, Calif. ― Emergency Department physician, Dr. Augusto Cigliano, of Emanate Health Foothill Presbyterian Hospital, and Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Ankur Patel, of Emanate Health Orthopedics, have been named “Top Doctors” in the region by the Los Angeles Business Journal.
“Dr. Cigliano and Dr. Patel represent the very best that Emanate Health has to offer our patients, our community and our industry,” said Rob Curry, president and chief executive officer of Emanate Health. “This recognition demonstrates that they’re both providing world-class medical care for people that we serve throughout the greater San Gabriel Valley.”
The two doctors were selected from a field of 150 physicians in 12 disciplines of focus from throughout Southern California based on their “good standing, reputation, thought leadership and success,” among other factors.
For three years, the Los Angeles Business Journal has recognized “Top Doctors” from health systems like Cedars-Sinai, UCLA Health, City of Hope, Kaiser Permanente, Keck Medicine of USC and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, to name a few, in a special edition that has a readership of approximately 100,000 business leaders in the region.
Dr. Cigliano and Dr. Patel are also members of a select group of Emanate Health physicians that have been named “Top Doctors,” including last year’s honorees, Dr. Fahed Bitar in Cardiology, Dr. Claudia Muñoz in Neurology and Dr. Edward Tangchitnob in Women’s Health.
“The selection of the two physicians helps to reinforce our mission: Emanate Health exists to help people keep well in body mind and spirit by providing quality health care services in a safe, compassionate environment,” Curry said. “I applaud Dr. Cigliano and Dr. Patel for lending their hands, minds and hearts to deliver exceptional health care in our service area.”
