The Best Doctors list is the largest continuous independent survey of medical professionals. Those named to the list are nominated by physicians using a peer-to-peer process doctors use to identify the right specialists for their own patients. Researchers for the corporation confirm credentials and areas of expertise. Physicians cannot pay to be listed and cannot nominate or vote for themselves. The list is audited and certified by Gallup®, and results from exhaustive polling of more than 40,000 physicians in the U.S.


In a confidential review, current physicians listed answer the question, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer?” Best Doctors, Inc. evaluates the review results, and verifies all additional information to meet detailed inclusion criteria.
