By utilizing Best Doctors, members have access to the brightest minds in medicine to ensure the right diagnosis and treatment plan.
Best Doctors’ team of researchers conducts a biennial poll using the methodology that mimics the informal peer-to-peer process doctors themselves use to identify the right specialists for their patients. Using a polling method and balloting software that Gallup® has audited and certified, they gather the insight and experience of tens of thousands of leading specialists all over the country, while confirming their credentials and specific areas of expertise.
The result is the Best Doctors in America® List, which includes the most respected specialists and outstanding primary care physicians in the nation. These are the doctors that other doctors recognize as the best in their fields. They cannot pay a fee and are not paid to be listed and cannot nominate or vote for themselves. It is a list which is truly unbiased and respected by the medical profession and patients alike as the source of top quality medical information.
Gallup® has audited and certified Best Doctors, Inc.’s database of physicians and its companion The Best Doctors in America® List as using the highest industry standards survey methodology and processes. These lists are excerpted from The Best Doctors in America® 2017-2018 database, which includes close to 40,000 U.S. doctors in more than 40 medical specialties and 400 subspecialties. The Best Doctors in America® database is compiled and maintained by Best Doctors, Inc.
