Selecting the right doctor can be a challenge. What starts as a simple Internet search turns into an overwhelming list of doctors. How do you choose? You want the best, but what does the best actually look like? Well, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. can help, with Top Doctor guidebooks.
Each year, Top Doctor guidebooks are published and comprise a carefully and thoroughly vetted list of top doctors. This is not a list whimsically strewn together. Doctors who receive the Top Doctor distinction must exemplify outstanding care and be nominated by their peers. And that’s just the first hurdle.
The nominees’ names are then passed on to a physician-led team at Castle Connolly—and the vetting process continues. This physician-led team pours over the nominees’ credentials, education, training and much more, scrutinizing each detail to determine whether he or she is a Top Doctor. Only those who pass the vetting process earn the Top Doctor distinction and are featured in the annual guides.
Castle Connolly explains that while Top Doctor recipients are the very best doctors, talented doctors are out there without this distinction. A doctor’s lack of distinction does not imply the quality of his or her care. Top Doctor guides aim to help patients recognize the qualities of the best doctors and bring them into view.
And this year, all eyes are on the Columbia University Medical Center/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital neurosurgeons who received the 2016 Top Doctor distinction. Many of them appear in one of three Top Doctor guides: America’s Top Doctors, America’s Top Doctors for Cancer and Top Doctors: New York Metro Area. Several Columbia neurosurgeons were featured in two, even all three, guides.
