Memphis Magazine’s annual Top Doctors list is formulated in partnership with Castle Connolly, a research company that applies rigorous standards to identify the top physicians in all 50 states. The goal is to give patients information to choose the best doctor for their health care needs.

Physicians who appear on the lists are first nominated by their peers based not only on their training and clinical skills, but interpersonal skills like listening and communicating effectively, demonstrating empathy, and instilling trust and confidence.

Castle Connolly uses criteria including professional qualifications, education, hospital/faculty appointments, research leadership, professional reputation, disciplinary history, and available outcomes data to evaluate the nominees. Doctors do not pay to appear on the lists.
