Miami Children's Physicians Listed Among ‘America’s Top Doctors’

Published on: 12/19/2011
Fifty Miami Children's physicians have been identified by U.S.News & World Report as being among “America’s Top Doctors.” What’s more, three of the Miami Children's subspecialists were further highlighted as being among the top 1 percent of physicians in their subspecialty nationwide. According to the website, the goal of the U.S.News Top Doctors is to help guide consumers to leading specialists. The Top Doctors differs from U.S.News hospital rankings, as key physicians are not specifically ranked in sequence. However, those who are deemed to be in the top 1 percent of their specialty were highlighted within the listing.
To identify Top Doctors, U.S. News teamed up with Castle Connolly, a New York City-based research and information company dedicated to identifying top healthcare resources. Physicians are selected for Top Doctors based on nominations by peers and review by Castle Connolly’s physician-directed research team.
