How the Best Doctors were chosen

Founded in 1989 by Harvard Medical School professors, Best Doctors, Inc. is transforming and improving health care. The global company, headquartered in Boston, serves more than 30 million members in every major region of the world. The company works with the best five percent of doctors to find the right diagnoses and right treatments and seamlessly integrates its services with employers’ other health-related benefits.

More than a traditional second opinion, Best Doctors delivers a comprehensive evaluation of a patient’s medical condition — providing value to both patients and treating physicians. By utilizing Best Doctors, members have access to the brightest minds in medicine to ensure the right diagnosis and treatment plan.

Best Doctors’ team of researchers conducts a biennial poll using the methodology that mimics the informal peer-to-peer process doctors themselves use to identify the right specialists for their patients. Using a polling method and balloting software, which Gallup has audited and certified, they gather the insight and experience of tens of thousands of leading specialists all over the country, while confirming their credentials and specific areas of expertise.

The result is the Best Doctors in America List, which includes the nation’s most respected specialists and outstanding primary care physicians in the nation. These are the doctors that other doctors recognize as the best in their fields. They cannot pay a fee and are not paid to be listed and cannot nominate or vote for themselves. It is a list that is truly unbiased and respected by the medical profession and patients alike as the source of top quality medical information.

Gallup has audited and certified Best Doctors, Inc.’s database of physicians, and its companion The Best Doctors in America List, as using the highest industry standards survey methodology and processes. These lists are excerpted from The Best Doctors in America 2013 database, which includes more than 45,000 U.S. doctors in more than 40 medical specialties and 400 subspecialties. The Best Doctors in America database is compiled and maintained by Best Doctors, Inc.  For more information, visit bestdoctors.com or contact Best Doctors by telephone at 800-675-1199 or by email at research@bestdoctors.com.  Please note that lists of doctors are not available on the Best Doctors website.
