Top Docs 2012

Those of us who live in Connecticut enjoy access to some of the most remarkable physicians in practice today. The state is also home to many of the nation’s most innovative health-care facilities—highly respected centers that provide expert treatment, research and instruction. In short, Connecticut is a busy, competitive, up-to-the-minute player in the world of modern medicine—an environment that makes it a special honor for the “Top Docs” who are listed to have been selected by their peers.  


How the doctors were selected

We recently sent more than 5,000 questionnaires to  Connecticut doctors, 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 eight specialties: dermatology, gastroenterology, general surgery, neurology, ophthalmology, psychiatry, urology and infectious diseases, which is being included for the first time. The top vote-getters in those categories  made the Top Docs listings, along with all those doctors in other specialties who finished at the top of our surveys from the years 2009 to 2011. We’ve done our best to update all the doctors’ information along the way.

The result is the largest group of Top Docs ever—840 doctors in 30 categories, in all the result of more than 15,000 questionnaires sent out over a four-year period. With such a wide array of specialties covered, this article from Connecticut Magazine makes a very good place to begin your search for medical help.

As always, it needs to be said 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 necessarily 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.
