Dr. Charles K. Herman, chief medical executive and chairman of surgery at Pocono Medical Center and clinical professor of surgery at The Commonwealth Medical College, was recently recognized as part of the New York Super Doctors 2014. This list ran in the May 18 New York Times as part of The New York Times Magazine to recognize top doctors in New York City. Dr. Herman is one of only a select number of plastic surgeons recognized in the entire New York City area.

The magazine listed top physicians across 41 specialties, and the selections were made by a peer vote looking at who the doctors would choose for their own or their families' medical care as well as a committee that researched professional recognition. Herman is an author of over 40 textbook chapters and journal articles and is also a board-certified plastic surgeon who performs cosmetic surgery of the face, breasts and body, as well as reconstructive surgery of the face and breasts. In addition to his PMC Physician Associates office in East Stroudsburg, he also has an office on Fifth Avenue in New York City near the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

"We are very fortunate to have physician leaders like Dr. Herman here providing care to the patients of our community, and I would like to take this time to again recognize him for being one of the top physicians in the entire nation within his discipline," said Dr. Bill Cors, vice president and chief quality officer of Pocono Health System/Pocono Medical Center.

In recent years, Herman was named Top Doctor in Plastic Surgery by the US News and World Report. That selection was also based on peer reviews and done by a physician-led research panel.
