Top Doctors 2014

A physician-led research team identifies the desert's 101 top doctors in 37 specialties



 

When it comes to your health, nothing but the best will do.

That’s why Palm Springs Life partnered with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a New York–based healthcare research and information company founded in 1991 by a former medical college board chairman and president to help guide consumers to America’s top doctors and hospitals.

Castle Connolly’s established survey and research process, under the direction of a medical doctor, involves tens of thousands of top doctors and the medical leadership of leading hospitals. In the nomination process for this distinction, Castle Connolly invites all licensed physicians to participate, asking them to nominate other physicians “they themselves would go to or would want a family member to go to — not only because of their excellent training and clinical skills but also because of the time, care, and concern they give to their patients.”

Doctors can access the nominations online at www.castleconnolly.com/nominations

The nominated doctors are then chosen to appear on the list by Castle Connolly’s physician-led research team, which follows a rigorous screening process of nominated physicians to select top doctors at regional and national levels. The firm carefully screens each doctor’s educational and professional experience before making the final selections.

Physicians selected for this feature may also appear in regional top doctors at www.castleconnolly.com or in one of Castle Connolly’s guidebooks, such as America’s Top Doctors or America’s Top Doctors for Cancer.

Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor.
