Connecticut Magazine partners with the national research firm Castle Connolly to distribute surveys to every licensed practicing physician in the state. Ranking is based on a regional peer-review survey. The physicians are asked to nominate specialists who they would recommend to friends and family for treatment. According to the Castle Connolly website, their research team “thoroughly vets each physician's professional qualifications, education, hospital and faculty appointments, research leadership, professional reputation, disciplinary history and if available, outcomes data. Additionally, a physician's interpersonal skills such as listening and communicating effectively, demonstrating empathy, and instilling trust and confidence, are also considered in the review process.” Those receiving the highest rankings are named as the top doctors and represent leading physicians in their respective specialties.
The annual list of Top Doctors can be found in Connecticut Magazine’s May 2022 issue.
