How Are Our Doctors Selected?

When it comes to health, we prefer to trust the experts. So, to generate our annual Top Doctors, we go to the experts: Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a healthcare research and information company, founded in 1991 by a former medical college board chairman and president to help guide consumers to America’s top doctors and hospitals. Castle Connolly’s established survey and research process, under the direction of an MD, involves tens of thousands of top doctors and the medical leadership of leading hospitals.  

Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., expanded its nominations process in late June 2011, and now invites all licensed physicians to participate in the nomination process to help Castle Connolly identify outstanding top doctors. The nominations process can be accessed, online only, at castleconnolly.com/nominations. The company’s physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process of nominated physicians to select top doctors. Careful screening of doctors’ educational and professional experience is essential before final selection is made among those physicians most highly regarded by their peers.

Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors.

Physicians selected for inclusion in this magazine’s “Top Doctors” feature may also appear as Regional Top Doctors online at castleconnolly.com, or in one of Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors guides, such as America’s Top Doctors® or America’s Top Doctors® for Cancer.
