Congratulations to SightMD’s Exceptional Women in Medicine, Recognized as Among the Best in the Country


Four of SightMD’s women physicians have been recognized as among the country’s top doctors. This new distinction was just rolled out by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a research and information company that publishes the annual guidebooks America’s Top Doctors and Top Doctors: New York Metro Area. The company makes its selections based on peer nominations by 250,000 leading doctors nationwide.

Congratulations to Faye Knoll, MD, Irene Magramm, MD, Michelle Liebert, MD, and Meredith Prevor-Weiss, MD, SightMD’s Exceptional Women in Medicine, for gaining this well-deserved public distinction!

Dr. Faye Knoll is a board certified ophthalmologist specializing in both laser and traditional cataract surgery as well as laser vision correction including LASIK and PRK. Dr. Knoll completed a fellowship at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary in cornea and external diseases of the eye. Her favorite part of her job is developing lifelong relationships with her patients.

Dr. Michelle Liebert is a board certified pediatric ophthalmologist specializing in strabismus surgery. Dr. Liebert takes a personal interest in each and every one of her patients, caring for each as if they were her own. One of her favorite aspects of being a doctor is that she can follow her patients from prematurity until adulthood. When asked about her thoughts on receiving this award Dr. Liebert said “It’s an honor to be included among such exceptional women.”

Dr. Irene Magramm is a board certified ophthalmologist specializing in strabismus surgery and relief of double vision in children and adults. She also enjoys general ophthalmology in children and adults.

Dr. Meredith Prevor-Weiss is a board certified ophthalmologist and has over 22 years of experience in the medical field. Dr. Prevor-Weiss treats each patient as a unique individual and understands his or her needs before recommending a course of action. 

In compiling its new list of Exceptional Women in Medicine 2023, Castle Connolly culled the names of women physicians from its already published Top Doctors guidebooks. Recognizing Exceptional Women in Medicine is part of the company’s Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiative, designed to rectify past omissions and inequities. Its DEI initiative will also allow patients to find top female doctors across the country—including at SightMD.

Women’s achievements in medicine matter a great deal, but without recognition, they may tend to fade into the background. Castle Connolly’s decision to shine a light on outstanding women in medicine will also encourage new generations of women to pursue careers as physicians.
