Every year, Boston magazine publishes its Top Doctors list, highlighting the very best physicians Beantown has to offer. Yet again, the Boston Center for Plastic Surgery’s Dr. Leonard Miller and Dr. Sean Doherty have each earned a space on this important list.

Collaborating with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., Boston magazine’s list is a comprehensive guide for potential patients looking for a healthcare provider. This compilation is not only for new clients, however, established patients can also check to see if their current physician is in the cream-of-the-crop or falls short of the ranking. The Boston Top Doctors 2020 roster is filled with more than 1,500 providers from 66 different medical specialties.

Who is Castle Connolly?

Castle Connolly is one of the most respected healthcare research associations in the United States. Since 1991, Castle Connolly has dedicated their efforts to help consumers find the top healthcare in their area. Every year, the research group puts together a list of the most trusted providers for a variety of cities including Boston, New York, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, and Seattle. The results are then featured in magazines such as Fortune, Town & Country, Good Housekeeping, Money Magazine, and Redbook

To make Top Doctor, a physician must be nominated by his/her peers through an extensive survey process. Castle Connolly’s physician-led research team then reviews each doctor’s medical educations, training, hospital appointments, and disciplinary histories. Only those doctors who rank among the best in their specialty within the community will make the final cut. Most often, these regional Top Doctors make-up only 10-15% of the practicing physicians within their geographical region.

Why does Castle Connolly make their Top Doctor lists? They understand the confusion a potential patient can face when it comes to choosing a new provider. Whether someone is looking for an oncologist, pediatrician, gastroenterologist, or cosmetic surgeon, there is nothing more frustrating than trying to pick the right doctor to meet your needs. By teaming up with local publications, Castle Connolly can give consumers the upper hand when seeking medical assistance.
