Top Docs 2010

Which doctors do other doctors recommend? Here are the results of our exclusive survey.

 

Here in Connecticut, we benefit from some of the finest health care in the nation. Among all the states, we rank No. 4 in the ratio of doctors per capita and we produce and retain some of most respected health-care practitioners anywhere. In such an environment, being acclaimed a “Top Doc” by one’s peers is a special honor.

We recently sent more than 5,000 questionnaires to doctors from one end of Connecticut to the other, asking them to recommend a doctor (other than themselves) to whom they would send a loved one for expert medical care. In this year’s survey, the focus was on general internal medicine as well as the specialties of allergy and immunology, cardiology, endocrinology, family medicine, geriatric medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, oncology and hematology, physical medicine, podiatry, radiology and rheumatology. We then took the top vote-getters in those categories and combined their names with all those doctors who finished at the top of our surveys from the years 2007 to 2009—making sure to update all necessary information as we went along.

The result is our largest group of Top Docs ever—more than 750 doctors in 25 categories, the result of more than 13,000 questionnaires sent out over a four-year period. With such a wide array of specialties covered, this issue of Connecticut Magazine makes a very good place to begin your search for medical help.

As always, we like to say that every physician who makes the list is a good one, or at least a recommended one, but not every good physician in the state makes the list. Because of that, we suggest you use this list as a reference, not the final word. You must ultimately do your own due diligence and decide which doctor is right for you or your loved one.
