About the Top Docs Awards

The Top Docs awards are based on a rigorous selection process. Nominees complete a comprehensive qualification questionnaire covering their education, training, years in practice, continuing education, licensing, publications, charitable work, professional appointments, and achievements. Each component is verified to ensure that nominees meet the high standards set by the Top Docs organization. Board certification is required for applicable specialties, and nominees must also undergo a thorough review of malpractice and licensing records to confirm there are no serious issues. Patient reviews are collected and compiled to provide a comprehensive assessment of each nominee’s performance.
