Collaboration Among the Best

Best Doctors creates a collaborative environment where physicians work together to improve outcomes. We do this by creating a report that not only supports the member, but also the treating team, which supports decision making and helps ensure better outcomes.


Physician Selection

Since 1989, Best Doctors has conducted one of the largest ongoing polls in health care to identify the physicians that other physicians trust most. Voting physicians are asked, “If you or a loved one needed a physician in your specialty, to whom would you refer?” Learn more about the Best Doctors poll here.

The Best Doctors proprietary, global database includes more than 50,000 physicians in over 450 specialties and subspecialties. Best Doctors physicians are:

  • Selected by their peer physicians to this prestigious list via the Best Doctors poll.
  • The top 5% of U.S. physicians from whom other physicians would seek care for themselves and loved ones.
  • Leading medical practitioners, researchers and teachers.
  • Clinically and academically accomplished.
  • Affiliated with national and global centers of excellence like Dana-Farber, Baylor, Memorial Sloan-Kettering and Johns Hopkins as well as local community hospitals.
