America's Top Doctors®, now in its 7th edition, profiles more than 5,000 of the nation's top medical doctors. America's Top Doctors® for Cancer, now in its 3rd edition, profiles more than 2,200 of the nation's top cancer doctors. All Castle Connolly guides are available at major book stores and online at http://www.CastleConnolly.com or via its toll-free number, 1-800-399-D*O*C*S (3627).
America's Top Doctors® is the product of an extensive peer-nominated survey process. Over the years and throughout previous editions, the Castle Connolly physician-led research team has developed its database of physicians across the nation through periodic mail, telephone and email surveys. This cumulative database is continuously maintained and systematically updated. The result is a carefully researched and highly selective list of the top specialists in the nation, among the very best in their specialties as well as their communities. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be included in any Castle Connolly guide or lists.
Commenting on a recent study that U.S. patients treated at top-rated hospitals are 71% less likely to die than those in the lowest-rated hospitals, healthcare expert Dr. John J. Connolly, President & CEO of Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., said "The key factor in this significant difference in survival rate is that the top hospitals attract the top doctors, and this powerful combination can be a life-saving one." The study was conducted by HealthGrades.com, another leading online healthcare ratings company.
Dr. Connolly, publisher of America's Top Doctors®, America's Top Doctors® for Cancer and other acclaimed consumer healthcare publications, continued, "The best thing a consumer can do in finding the best healthcare is to find a top doctor and the hospitals at which they practice. Our guides and online information help consumers to identify the top doctors and through them, the best healthcare possible."
