Three cheers to Dr. David Sherr, Chief of Radiation Oncology at The Brooklyn Hospital Center, who was awarded a fellowship in the American College of Radiation Oncology.

Fellows must have demonstrated extraordinary service to the college and to the profession through education, research, or service activities.

“It was an honor to be selected for fellowship in the college. I’m privileged to be able to use my expertise and experience to ensure that patients at The Brooklyn Hospital Center receive the highest quality radiation therapy possible,” said Dr. Sherr.

Dr. Sherr attended the awards ceremony at The Radiation Oncology Summit: ACRO 2018, held in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

He was also recently named a “Top Doctor” in 2018 by Castle Connolly, the fifth year in a row he was given this honor. Physicians included in the “Top Doctors” series are nominated by their peers in an extensive survey process of thousands of American doctors each year.
