Seven physicians from Garnet Health Doctors, formerly Orange Regional Medical Group and Catskill Regional Medical Group, were selected as 2020 Castle Connolly “America’s Top Doctors.”

“These dedicated and talented physicians exemplify the quality of patient care we provide at Garnet Health Doctors,” said Dr. Gerard Galarneau, President, Garnet Health Doctors. “We congratulate and thank them for their devotion to the health of our patients.”

The seven physicians from Garnet Health Doctors are:

  • Joseph Chavez Carey (Family Medicine)

  • Bella Fradlis (Rheumatology)
  • Raghuram Gorti (Vascular Surgery)
