South Shore Living and Cape Cod Magazine published a portion of the list, which includes 245 physicians chosen for quality care in Barnstable, Plymouth and Norfolk Counties. This list is part of a national directory developed annually by Castle Connolly Medical, Ltd., an independent medical directory organization with a mission of helping consumers locate quality physicians.
The annual list process starts by inviting every licensed US doctor to nominate fellow doctors. Castle Connolly’s physician-led team then evaluates the nominees on criteria such as education, training, hospital appointments and disciplinary history. The selected doctors are then listed on the company’s website in a searchable database. (Doctors do not and cannot pay to be included.)
Making the America's Top Doctors list reflects a doctor’s positive reputation and credentials, providing patients and referring physicians with evidence of quality care.
