How We Chose Our Doctors

Atlanta magazine’s Top Doctors list was compiled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. This New York–based healthcare research and information company was founded in 1991 by a former medical college board chair and president to guide consumers to America’s leading doctors and hospitals. Castle Connolly’s established survey and research process involves tens of thousands of doctors and the medical leadership of prominent hospitals.

Castle Connolly expanded its nominations process in late June 2011 and now invites all licensed physicians to participate in recommending their colleagues. The process can be accessed online only at castleconnolly.com/nominations. Careful screening of doctors’ educational and professional experience is essential before final selection. Castle Connolly seeks nominations not only of physicians who excel in academic medicine and research but also of those who exhibit excellence in patient care—those to whom nominating physicians would send their own families. The survey does not include fields in which patients rarely have a choice, such as emergency medicine or anesthesiology, nor does it include cosmetic surgery as a stand-alone specialty.

Earlier this year, Castle Connolly and Atlanta magazine made an extra effort to invite licensed physicians in DeKalb, Fulton, Cobb, Clayton, and Gwinnett—the counties covered by this list—to participate in the online voting through atlantamagazine.com.

Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors. Physicians selected for inclusion in this feature may also appear as Regional Top Doctors online at castleconnolly.com or in one of Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors paperback guides, such as America’s Top Doctors® or America’s Top Doctors® for Cancer. These resources provide detailed information about Top Doctors’ education, training, and special expertise.

Castle Connolly’s acclaimed national and regional guides are available online at ccastleconnolly.com, via toll-free number 800-399-DOCS (3627), and at major national bookstores.
