National recognition by your clinical peers is one of the highest honors for a doctor," said Dr. Fredrick Miller, Chief Executive Officer and President for PhyMed Healthcare Group.
For its annual listings, Best Doctors contacts more than 45,000 physicians and asks, "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, who would you refer them to?" A doctor must be nominated by a current Best Doctors member to be considered for inclusion. All current members and nominees are evaluated every two years. Best Doctors receives no compensation to list physicians in its database, and does not pay for participation in its surveys.
For more than 20 years, Best Doctors has conducted its extensive physician survey "to identify the doctors that other doctors trust most." It is the largest annual, peer-reviewed survey in medicine.
