The COVID-19 crisis turned our collective worlds upside down. With little warning, the virus, and its associated economic upheaval, caused profound change in our personal and professional lives.
While many of us were allowed to work from home to stop the spread of the virus, health care workers across the globe – and right here in the Capital Region – rose to the occasion, risking their own personal safety to protect others.
This year, CDPHP Top Doctors presents Frontline Heroes: The People’s Choice Awards. Nominated by their patients and peers, these individuals are being recognized for showing compassion, care, and concern in the midst of a global pandemic.
Congratulations to our Frontline Heroes award winners!

Trying to find a new physician in the Saratoga area. All I need is a list of physicians who are in this area, who are HMO doctors, and are taking new patients. so far I’ve found this website to be useless in this simple pursuit.(Video) Top Doctors 360° Special Services
Hi, Gerald – We can help with that! Please use our search tool at https://findadoc.cdphp.com. You can look up doctors that participate with your specific plan and narrow your search to the Saratoga area.
I have a high deductible plan via CDPHP. I need a diagnostic test and have been calling imaging centers and hospitals to get cost estimates. They typically ask for the CPT code what plan I have, then look it up and tell me the “agreed to price”. Is there a page on the CDPHP website I can just enter the diagnostic code and you can direct me to whomever is the low cost provider for this procedure? Thank you. Mark Connolly
Top Doctors report is almost completely absent of doctors, instead listing facilities with no links to any of them. All in all, this is really not useful. I was honestly curious to see such a report, and how it was generated, etc. But this? There is more devoted to the About Author section than anything else.
If CDPHP wants its subscribers to engage with CDPHP, this is a good lesson in how to do it very poorly.
Thank you for your feedback. The CDPHP Top Doctors report is generated using health care data at the practice level, which is why we include office names and locations. We would be happy to assist you with finding a provider at one of these offices. Please visit findadoc.cdphp.com or you may contact CDPHP member services at the number on your member ID card.(Video) Interviewing Top Doctors/Consultants about their NUMBER 1 HEALTH TIPS | 'List of Ways Not To Die'
Dr. Michelle Abis is a uniquely caring physician, apart from being at the very top in her field of expertise. In stead of relying on yesterday’s news, she researched, if anything new or anyone new with a more advanced expertise was available, who would better serve my needs after a diagnosis of thymoma. Dr. Abis has worked with thoracic surgeons, of course, over the years, but she didn’t give me just a name of a doctor, whom she knew and had referred patients to before. No she approached my case, as if she knew no thoracic surgeon. And she didn’t know Dr. Borah, but based on what she read and learned about him, that’s who she recommended and I am most sincerely grateful and feel ever so lucky being now under the care of the two of them.
Hi, Marianne – Thank you for your feedback! We wish you well.
There is no Plan Type on the front of my card.
Hi, Adele – Please see our blog, Understanding Your Health Insurance ID Card, for help locating your plan type. https://blog.cdphp.com/how-to/understanding-health-insurance-id-card/.
Thank you to the caring professionals at CDPHP. As we transition to Medicare it was easy to select CDPHP to be our Medicare Managed Care plan. The process was surprisingly easy! Your support approving reatments over the past 25 plus years has enabled my husband to have a solid quality of life, and very shortly will be holding his first grandchild. You have no idea what it means to us to know you are helping to guide us in the best possible way with challenging treatment considerations. He is doing great…We wish you all a very Happy New Year!(Video) Every Doctor ANALYZED & RANKED | Doctor Who
