    • Hi, William –

      Absolutely! We work with the Albany Business Review to accept nominations. Please keep a look out for the announcement next summer.

    Dear Dr Bennett: I agreee with other comments. It is the PROVIDER, not the practice, that counts. A group may consist of excellent and not so good providers. How you are treated as a patient depends on which provider you are a patient of. Thanks for excellent health insurance coverage!
