WHAT’S UP, TOP DOCS?
What makes Hour Detroit experts in health when publishing “the best” doctors in Detroit?... Please check credentials for the Top Docs. I’ve been told that [a doctor] is not board certified or board eligible for the specialty they’re listed under.
(Editor’s Note: The above represents excerpts of letters received about our Top Docs list [October 2014].It bears repeating that the doctors are not selected by members of the Hour Detroit staff. They are nominated exclusively through online surveys submitted by physicians [M.D.s and D.O.s] in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, and Livingston counties. Hour Detroit tabulates the votes, fact-checks names and affiliations of winners, and checks if a physician’s license is valid, but does not check board certifications.)
VIVA OTTAVA VIA
Had a fantastic dinner at Ottava Via (“Top of Their League,” October 2014). Great food. Great service. And a parking lot! Loved it.

IT’S GOOD TO BE KING
I love this article! (“King of the Castle,” October 2014). I didn’t realize that Mark Ridley and I have so-o-o much in common. My mother also played piano and my husband and I attended Wayne State University.

TO YOUR HEALTH, NATURALLY
Great job! (“Fresh Prescription,” October 2014) It is always good to introduce natural ways to solve an ailment.
— Lidia Reyes, executive director at Latino Family Services
Thank you for a fabulous piece in the October issue (“Baby-Friendly Basics”). Your grasp on the baby-friendly accreditation and the infant mortality issues that face us here in Detroit was spot on!
— Paula K. Schreck, M.D., St. John Providence Health System, breastfeeding coordinator
// Congratulations Christina [Partalis]! So glad you stuck it out. As a breast-feeding mother of three, now all grown up, it is definitely worth the effort!
