Dr. David W. Carlton

Dr. David W. Carlton of the Rome office of Atlanta Allergy & Asthma Clinic — the largest allergy practice in Georgia — was included in the prestigious Top Doctor online listing by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. — an established healthcare research company based in New York City.

Six other Atlanta Allergy physicians joined Carlton as a Top Doctor honoree: Dr. Kevin L. Schaffer was also named to the Top Doctor online listing, while Drs. Stanley M. Fineman, Linda D. Guydon, Kathleen A. Sheerin, David D. Tanner, and John A. Zora were named to the 2014 list of Top Doctors in the July issue of Atlanta magazine.

The Top Doctors listing is compiled annually by Castle Connolly. The organization also compiles Atlanta magazine’s list of Top Doctors annually. Doctors are nominated for consideration through both a nationwide survey and a peer nomination process open to licensed physicians in DeKalb, Fulton, Cobb, Clayton, and Gwinnett counties. Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers then select the Top Doctors through a rigorous screening process that includes an evaluation of educational and professional experience.

Carlton said he is honored to be included in the online listing. “It is an honor to be recognized alongside so many of my esteemed colleagues and other great physicians. This listing helps to recognize the important role specialists play in identifying and treating allergy and asthma conditions,” said Dr. Carlton. “We’re thrilled to play such an important role in this treatment for the Atlanta community.”
