Burke Rehabilitation Hospital announced that Barry D. Jordan, M.D., M.P.H., has been selected as one of the Best Doctors for Neurology by New York Magazine. Dr. Jordan serves as assistant medical director and director of neurorehabilitation at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital. It is the 16th consecutive year he has been on the publication’s prestigious Best Doctors list, a compilation based on a peer-review survey.
“We are very proud that Dr. Jordan has received this notable recognition for the 16th time. Burke is privileged to have him on our staff,” says Jeffrey Menkes, president and CEO of Burke Rehabilitation Hospital. “Dr. Jordan’s expertise and dedication exemplifies our mission to empower patients to recover from life-changing illness, injury or surgery.”

Dr. Jordan is a board-certified neurologist with specialized interests in sports neurology, Alzheimer's disease, and traumatic brain injury. He is an associate professor of Clinical Neurology at Weill Medical College of Cornell University and a team physician for USA Boxing. For 13 years, he served as the chief medical officer of the New York State Athletic Commission.

Currently, Dr. Jordan serves as a medical advisory physician for NFL Player Benefits and is a member of the NFL Players Association Mackey-White Health and Safety Committee. He also is on the NCAA Concussion Task Force and the Pop Warner Medical Advisory Committee. As a leading expert in traumatic brain injury, he is the author/coauthor of four books on sports neurology and is regularly quoted in the national media.

Dr. Jordan, who joined Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in 1999, has completed a fellowship in public health at Cornell University Medical College, a clinical neurology fellowship at the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, a fellowship in sports neurology at the Hospital for Special Surgery, and a fellowship in behavioral neurology at UCLA Medical Center. He earned a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania, an M.D. from Harvard Medical School, and a Masters of Public Health from Columbia University.

Dr. Jordan comments, “It is an honor to be named one of the Best Doctors in New York again this year, especially to be included in a group of such distinguished physicians. At Burke, we pride ourselves on our comprehensive neurorehabilitation programs for those who have experienced a life changing neurological injury and this recognition helps raise awareness for these vital programs.”
