Physicians are chosen through a peer-review process and the firm investigates each doctor's credentials and disciplinary history. The list is also balanced based on specialty and geographic location.

Currently, Dr. Lansman is Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery at the Westchester Medical Center and a Professor of Surgery at New York Medical College. Specialties include Coronary Artery Surgery, Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD), Heart Transplant, Aortic Aneurysm and Heart Valve Surgery.
