Recommended (Top 20%):
These are based on peer recommendations. Other doctors are likely to choose these doctors for their own personal care.
Top Experts (Top 5%):
These individuals are subject matter experts and key opinion leaders within their specialty. They frequently conduct research in their given area of expertise, are at top tier medical institutions, are frequently invited to give talks and may be on panels that provide guidance or issue medical standards.
Our list is not complete or perfect. We are a group of practicing physicians, some subject matter experts in their respective fields, data scientists and technologists and patients who have come together to codify their insights to choosing the best medical provider.
The recipe is constantly evolving. Peer opinions, education, training, procedural volume, subject matter expertise, research involvement, authorship of position statements, panel guidance that serve as standards of medical care in the United States and worldwide have been utilized to identify our top experts. We have purposefully minimized the input of patient feedback and reviews (not eliminated) since technical competency is not a correlate of social competency.
Our methodology is unique and comprehensive unlike several other out there.
