Two Wake Forest Baptist Health Doctors Ranked by Newsweek as Nation’s Best

August 11, 2021

Craig M. Greven, M.D., chair and professor of ophthalmology, and Malcolm W. Marks, M.D., professor of plastic and reconstructive surgery, were recently recognized by Newsweek as among the best doctors in their fields.

Greven is ranked No. 59 in Newsweek’s America’s Best Eye Doctors 2021 – Ophthalmologists, which ranked the top 150 in the country. There are currently more than 19,000 practicing ophthalmologists in the United States.  For the rankings, more than 10,000 ophthalmologists, optometrists, clinic managers and other health care professionals were asked to recommend the best eye doctors in the country. Results were also analyzed based on the quality of care provided, continuity of care and the quality of the technology used in their practices.

The Wake Forest Baptist Health Eye Center, which sees more than 90,000 patients a year, provides a full range of ophthalmology services, optometric and optical services using leading-edge treatments, and state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical equipment.

Marks received recognition as one of America's Best Plastic Surgeons 2021 and was ranked in four categories: breast augmentation (No. 110), facelift (No. 41), liposuction (No. 74) and rhinoplasty (No. 35). To determine the winners, a national survey was sent to plastic surgeons, who were asked to recommend the best plastic surgeons across the country. Providers were also evaluated on quality metrics related to surgery preparation, surgical procedures, follow-up care and surgical outcomes. The rankings feature the top 200 plastic surgeons for breast augmentation and the top 150 for liposuction, facelift and rhinoplasty.

The plastic and reconstructive surgery team at Wake Forest Baptist offers patients the most advanced techniques for cosmetic procedures in addition to reconstructive surgery for cancer, trauma, acute and chronic wounds, and burn care.

To compile all the rankings, Newsweek partnered with Statista, a global data research firm.
