Why Castle Connolly Top Doctors Make a Difference

When choosing a healthcare provider, look for the trusted Castle Connolly name.

Looking for the best doctors to care for you or a loved one can be overwhelming and stressful. When it comes to medical care, excellence and expertise are crucially important. Inferior care can have costly and damaging results. Too often, patients simply don’t know how to find the right doctor.

Castle Connolly takes this challenge seriously. For over 25 years patients have turned to us as the official source of Top Doctors to find trusted, quality care. Our list, which covers all 50 states and all major specialties, is based on nominations from doctors themselves. Although we ask physicians to consider many criteria when nominating their fellow providers, the premise is simple - as a doctor, where would you go if you needed care?

Our physician-led research team then thoroughly screens each nomination to ensure that every Top Doctor selection meets Castle Connolly’s rigorous standards. Castle Connolly Top Doctors do not pay to receive this elite designation.

Doctors with deeper expertise - higher procedure volumes, access to advanced diagnostic and treatment options, and those leading cutting-edge research - are proven to have better patient outcomes. For example, in one study of 10,343 gastric bypass surgeries published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the top 25% of surgeons had a complication rate of 5.2% versus 14.5% for the bottom 25% of surgeons. Quality care matters. At Castle Connolly, it’s our goal to connect patients with these best-in-class providers.

Many other sites and publications either list all practicing physicians, regardless of clinical quality, or only list doctors who pay to be promoted. Castle Connolly has no conflicts of interest and is able to provide an unbiased directory that consumers can rely on.
