What is a Top Doctors Award?

Castle Connolly has provided a network of distinguished physicians in all major specialties across the U.S. for over 30 years. Castle Connolly Top Doctors are each board certified and known for their excellent quality of care and health outcomes for patients. Nominations are made by practicing doctors, and Castle Connolly's selection team is led by physicians, so patients can rest assured that any physician or hospital they find in the Top Doctor directory will provide them with personalized and trusted care.

Castle Connolly's Selection Process

The Top Doctor selection begins with the nomination process. Castle Connolly Surveys practicing physicians across the United States to identify those who are regarded as stand-out practitioners. In order to be considered for a Top Doctors Award, physicians must be nominated by their peers. Castle Connolly asks the doctors in its surveys to nominate practitioners who have stellar interpersonal skills in addition to their training and clinical skills.

Castle Connolly's research team then begins their review process in which they screen these peer nominated physicians. This physician-led team evaluates qualities such as:

  • Professional qualifications
  • Education
  • Hospital and faculty appointments
  • Research leadership
  • Professional reputation
  • Disciplinary history
  • Outcomes data (where available)

Castle Connolly's commitment to integrity means that all Top Doctors have gone through this process-- and no one can pay to be considered or selected.

Castle Connolly ensures that its Top Doctor list remains relevant. Top Doctors are selected every year, and physicians can be removed from the list if the selection team determines that they no longer live up to the standards of a Top Doctor.
