What is the Best Doctors® list?
Best Doctors is an organization dedicated to improving quality of care by helping people get the right diagnosis and right treatment. At the heart of their mission is the best talent in medicine today. The Best Doctors® list includes the nation’s most respected specialists and outstanding primary care physicians. The list represents the top 5% of doctors in the U.S. with more than 46,000 doctors in over 400 specialties and subspecialties across the country.
The list is the result of over two decades of work conducting the largest continuous independent survey of the medical profession. Best Doctors® uses information gathered from peers, polling and balloting of thousands of leading specialists all over the country, and a team of researchers to confirm credentials and specific areas of expertise.
These are the doctors that other doctors recognize as the best in their fields. Doctors can not pay a fee and are not paid to be listed and cannot nominate or vote for themselves. The Best Doctors® list is truly unbiased. Today the list is respected by the medical profession and patients alike as the source of top quality medical information.
