Over the past 12 months, 51 Department of Pediatrics faculty have been included in one or more of the “top doctors” lists from Best Doctors.com, Madison Magazine, and U.S. News and World Report. Of these, eleven (indicated with asterisks below) were named in the most recent list: “U.S. News Top Doctors,” a new, searchable directory that lists peer-nominated physicians around the country. The U.S. News list was created in collaboration with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., which publishes America’s Top Doctors and other consumer health guides. It draws from Castle Connolly’s database of Top Doctors, which is based on nominations from doctors in academic medical centers, specialty and regional hospitals, and private practices. All nominated physicians are individually reviewed by a doctor-led research team on training, achievements and appointments, and other credentials.
