Highlights from the Castle Connolly Website
With over 25 years’ experience researching, reviewing and selecting Top Doctors, Castle Connolly is a source you can count on when looking for the best in American medicine. In fact, a 2018 study published in the Journal of Medical Research found that across several specialties Castle Connolly’s peer-reviewed directory was much more reliable than sites that just relied on patient reviews when it came to identifying quality care. No one can pay to be a Castle Connolly Top Doctor, each physician has been hand selected. Our mission is to find you the best possible care. At Castle Connolly, we’ve done the research so you don’t have to.
Castle Connolly evaluates several criteria when selecting Top Doctors, including professional qualifications, education, hospital and faculty appointments, research leadership, professional reputation and disciplinary history. Where available, we include outcomes data in our research. We also ask doctors in our survey to consider not only the training and clinical skills of the physicians they nominate, but also interpersonal skills such as listening and communicating effectively, demonstrating empathy, and instilling trust and confidence.
