Physicians were asked to nominate one or more doctors (excluding themselves) whom they would choose if they or a loved one were seeking medical care. From there, candidates were grouped into different specialties and on myriad factors, including (but not limited to) peer recognition, professional achievement, extensive research and disciplinary history. Doctors who had the highest scores from each grouping were invited to serve on a blue-ribbon panel that evaluated the other candidates. The Top Doctors are all listed in the July issue of the magazine.
