How to choose a doctor
A family practitioner, aninternist, a specialist in adolescent or geriatric medicine or an obstetrician-gynecologist.
Yes, pediatricians still must have talent and good academic credentials, but they should also know how to put children at ease.
Numbed by the shock of a cancer diagnosis, some patients rush to visit an oncologist and never seek a second opinion.
Patients planning reparative surgery need a recovery strategy and a good orthopedic surgeon
Academic credentials, experience and availability in an emergency should top the list of cardiologist qualifications, heart patients should also consider convenience.
Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. is a healthcare research and information company founded in 1991 by a former medical college board chairman and president to help guide consumers to America's top doctors and top hospitals. Castle Connolly's established survey and research process, under the direction of an MD, involves tens of thousands of top doctors and the medical leadership of leading hospitals.
Castle Connolly's physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Using mail and telephone surveys, and electronic ballots, they ask physicians and the medical leadership of leading hospitals to identify highly skilled, exceptional doctors. Careful screening of doctors' educational and professional experience is essential before final selection is made among those physicians most highly regarded by their peers.
The result - we identify the top doctors in America ( http://www.castleconnolly.com/books/book.cfm?bookID=ATD-6 ) and provide you, the consumer, with detailed information about their education, training and special expertise in our paperback guides, national and regional magazine “Top Doctors” features and online directories.
Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors
