The mission of The Best Docs™ is to help people find the most reputable, top ranked doctors in America. Many websites claim their top doctor lists are legitimate but a number of them place doctors on their lists for a fee, not for their qualifications. We have reviewed a number of websites that offer top doctor lists and found only a select few were truly trustworthy. All of these base their selection process on the foundation of peer nominations. This concept is to have physicians nominate other doctors who they feel are the most outstanding in their medical specialty, in any area of medicine and in any part of the country. They cannot nominate themselves. After nominations are collected, the doctor’s medical education, training, board certifications, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements and malpractice and disciplinary history are reviewed before they can qualify to be a top doctor. There is no perfect system, but we feel this is the most effective way to identify top doctors across the country. It is certainly valuable to know the doctors that other doctors use for themselves and their families.
Therefore, The Best Docs™ only features doctors who have been peer-nominated and selected by the nation's leading providers of information on best doctors such as: Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., Super Doctors, Best Doctors, Inc. and many city magazines who run peer-nominated best doctor issues such as New York magazine's "Best Doctors".

Building upon The Best Docs™ strong success in the in-flight magazines, we are happy to announce a new on-line presence to give our best doctors a forum to share their particular expertise with the public.
