Doctors who received at least five votes from their peers were included on the list. The following Mayfield physicians were named in the neurological surgery category: • Robert Bohinski, MD, PhD • Charles Kuntz, IV, MD • Christopher McPherson, MD • Andrew Ringer, MD • Thomas Saul, MD • Bradbury Skidmore, MD • John M. Tew, MD • Philip Theodosopoulos, MD • William Tobler, MD • Ronald Warnick, MD • Mario Zuccarello, MD Best Doctors in America® is a national database that includes more than 40,000 physicians in 43 specialties.
