Top Docs 2011
As anyone who has received health care in Connecticut—and that’s pretty much all of us—can attest, we enjoy ready access to some of the finest physicians in practice today.
This state is also home to many of the nation’s top 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—making it a special honor for the “Top Docs” listed on the pages that follow to have been picked by their peers.
How the doctors were Selected:
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 eight specialties, including four new areas: bariatric medicine, nephrology, plastic and reconstructive surgery and pulmonary medicine. 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 2008 to 2010—making sure to update all necessary information as we went along.
The result is our largest group of Top Docs ever—837 doctors in 29 categories, the result of more than 15,000 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.
