About the List

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 nomination survey, research, screening, and selection process, under the direction of an MD, involves many hundreds of thousands of physicians as well as academic medical centers, specialty hospitals, and regional and community hospitals all across the nation. Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select Top Doctors on both the national and regional levels. Its online nominations process—located at—is open to all licensed U.S. MDs and DOs. They are able to nominate physicians in most medical specialties and in any part of the country, as well as indicate whether the nominated physicians are—in their opinions—among the best in their region, or among the best in the nation in their medical specialties. Careful screening of doctors’ educational and professional experience is essential before final selection is made among those physicians most highly regarded by their peers. In result, Castle Connolly identifies the Top Doctors in America and provides consumers with detailed information about their education, training and special expertise in their 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.

This year’s list for Atlanta magazine considered physicians with primary offices in Carroll, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, and Rockdale counties. It does not include specialties in which patients rarely choose their clinicians—such as emergency medicine or anesthesiology.

Physicians selected for inclusion in this magazine’s Top Doctors feature may also appear as online at, or in conjunction with other Castle Connolly Top Doctors databases online and/or in print.
