U.S. News Top Doctors was created in collaboration with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., publisher of America's Top Doctors and other consumer health guides. It draws from Castle Connolly's database of Top Doctors, all recommended for their clinical skills by other doctors and individually vetted by a physician-led research team. Consumers can search for a Top Doctor by location, hospital affiliation, and a full range of specialties and subspecialties. For decades, the Best Hospitals rankings have helped guide patients who need an especially high level of care to hospitals that excel in providing it. Top Doctors has a similar mission, helping consumers find the doctors in their area who come highly recommended by other physicians.
Castle Connolly assembled the roster of Top Doctors by soliciting nominations from physicians in academic medical centers, specialty hospitals, and regional hospitals and physicians in private practice. Its research team then reviewed each nominee's training, achievements, and appointments, among other credentials.
