Ladies' Home Journal Names Two UNM Health Sciences Center Physicians as Best Doctors for Women in April Issue

Two physicians from the UNM Health Sciences Center are listed in the April 2002 issue of Ladies' Home Journal article "The best doctors for women coast to coast." Harriet Smith, M.D., a gynecological oncologist, and John Saiki, M.D., a medical oncologist, both work at the UNM Cancer Research & Treatment Center.

The article lists the top specialists for women in three women's health fields: obstetrics/gynecology, gynecological oncology and breast cancer specialists. Ladies' Home Journal employed the help of Castle Connolly, the publisher of the consumer guide, America's Top Doctors.

Smith, who has been at the UNM CRTC for 12 years, is an innovative researcher in the field of all gynecological cancers. Her goals are to increase access to clinical trials and bring in the newest treatments to provide the highest level of care for women throughout the state.

Saiki has been with the Cancer Center since its inception and is a noted lecturer and teacher.

Researchers at Castle Connolly develop the directory based on a rigorous screening process, which is done through mail and telephone surveys, electronic ballots and other research. Area physicians are asked to identify highly skilled, exceptional doctors. Careful screenings of the doctors' educational and professional experience are done before the final selection.
