The 2023 Top Doctors List

About the List

With more than 30 years of experience researching, reviewing, and selecting Top Doctors, Castle Connolly is a trusted and credible health-care research and information company. Our mission is to help people find the best health care by connecting patients with best-in-class health-care providers.

Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Its online nomination process — located at nominations.castleconnolly.comis open to all licensed physicians in America, who are able to nominate physicians in any medical specialty and in any part of the country as well as indicate whether the nominated physicians are, in their opinion, among the best in their region in their medical specialty or among the best in the nation in their medical specialty. Then, Castle Connolly’s research team thoroughly vets each physician’s professional qualifications, education, hospital and faculty appointments, research leadership, professional reputation, disciplinary history and, if available, outcomes data. Additionally, a physician’s interpersonal skills, such as listening and communicating effectively, demonstrating empathy, and instilling trust and confidence, are considered in the review process. The Castle Connolly Doctor Directory is the largest network of peer-nominated physicians in the nation.

Physicians selected for inclusion in this magazine’s “Top Doctors” feature may also appear online at or in in conjunction with other Castle Connolly Top Doctors databases online and/or in print.
