Eight physicians from Atlanta Allergy & Asthma, the largest allergy practice in Georgia with several locations in Cobb County, ranked among metro Atlanta’s Top Doctors in Atlanta magazine’s July issue.

More than half of the physicians in the publication’s allergy and immunology category come from this one practice.

The physicians were Drs. Stanley M. Fineman, Erinn T. Gardner, Linda D. Guydon, Keith Lenchner, Kevin L. Schaffer, Kathleen A. Sheerin, David D. Tanner and John A. Zora. Atlanta Allergy & Asthma is no stranger to the accolade, having had multiple physicians on the Top Doctors list since its inception.

Atlanta magazine uses a database of top doctors compiled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., an established health care research company based in New York, to assist in its annual effort. This year the publication honored 860 physicians. Doctors are nominated for consideration through both a nationwide survey and a peer nomination process open to licensed physicians. 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.

Dr. Stanley M. Fineman practices at Atlanta Allergy & Asthma’s East Cobb and Kennestone offices. He has been in private allergy practice for more than 40 years. After earning his medical degree from Emory University School of Medicine, he completed his internship and residency in pediatrics at the University of Cincinnati.

Dr. Fineman also completed his fellowship in allergy and immunology at Harvard University School of Medicine. He is board certified by the American Board of Allergy & Immunology. He is a fellow in the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, and the American Academy of Pediatrics. He has held leadership positions with several national and international allergy organizations.

He earned an MBA from Kennesaw State University and is a frequent lecturer at regional, national and international medical meetings. He is also a multi-year recipient of Top Doctor honors.
