Recognized by his physician peers, this is Dr. Plosker’s fifth time earning this honored distinction as a Tampa Magazines’ Top Doctor.

Tampa, FLA – Shady Grove Fertility (SGF) Tampa Bay is proud to announce that Shayne Plosker, M.D., has been named to the Tampa Magazine 2021 Top Doctors for Infertility list for the fifth time. With the votes in, Tampa Bay physicians chose 292 of their peers from 67 practice areas of medicine to compile the 2021 Top Doctors list.

In May, Tampa Magazines sent surveys to more than 9,000 physicians practicing in Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco counties asking them to nominate the peers they believe stand out from the rest. The annual Top Doctors edition includes all four publications —TAMPA Magazine, South Tampa Magazine, TAMPA Downtown Magazine, and TAMPA Digest Magazine — for a total circulation of 60,000.

“Fertility treatment can oftentimes feel intimidating when couples and individuals are dreaming of having a child, so I’m dedicated to providing them compassion and excellence in patient care as we navigate this journey together,” shares Dr. Plosker. “It’s humbling to know that my physician peers recognize these values at SGF by naming me a top doctor in my field — thank you many times over.”
