Cassel Conolley selects Top Doctors based on a robust and completely unbiased research process. Each year, Castle Connolly surveys physicians and other healthcare leaders around the country. They ask them to identify doctors that embody excellence in clinical care as well as interpersonal skills such as listening and communicating, demonstrating empathy, and instilling trust and confidence in patients. Any licensed MD or DO can nominate a fellow physician for Top Doctor recognition.

The physician-led Castle Connolly research team then carefully reviews the credentials of every physician being considered for inclusion. This includes, among other factors, scrutiny of medical education, training, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements, and malpractice and disciplinary history.
