Top Doctors

LIFE ON THE GULFSHORE is all about getting the best out of what paradise has to offer—and that includes high-quality healthcare. Locally, leading physicians and surgeons offer top-quality care in a host of specialties, with healthcare professionals practicing the latest techniques and taking part in cutting-edge research.

For these reasons, we’re proud to offer our readers this list of accredited practitioners granted Top Doctor status by national medical research firm Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., which selects winners following careful screening and peer nominations. As part of our coverage, we’ve also profiled five healthcare professionals who live up to the highest standards in their respective fields.

You can use this list—really, this entire issue—as a resource to connect with the right doctor and the proper care. However, the path to good health is a personal one. Your route may lead you to seek the advice of a physician who’s not on our list. Only you can decide what’s the right course for you.

Castle Connolly Top Doctors is a healthcare research company and the official source for Top Doctors for more than 25 years. Castle Connolly’s established nomination survey, research, screening and selection process involves many hundreds of thousands of physicians as well as academic medical centers, specialty hospitals, and regional and community hospitals across the nation.

The online nominations process—located at nominations.castleconnolly.com—is open to all licensed physicians in America who are able to nominate physicians in any medical specialty and any part of the country. Once nominated, Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select Top Doctors who meet the Castle Connolly standards. The research team also identifies Castle Connolly Rising Stars, peer-nominated doctors who meet most of our Top Doctor criteria but are earlier in their career.

Careful screening of doctors’ educational and professional experience is essential before final selections are made among those physicians most highly regarded by their peers. The result: We identify the top doctors in America and provide you, the consumer, with detailed information about their education, training and special expertise in our online directories and national and regional magazine Top Doctors features.

Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors or Rising Stars.

Physicians selected for inclusion in this magazine’s Top Doctors feature also appear online castleconnolly.com or in conjunction with other Castle Connolly Top Doctors databases online and/or in print.
