For the past 13 years, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a research and information company, has provided New York magazine with a shorter version of its annual guidebook, “Top Doctors: New York Metro Area,” for the magazine’s “Best Doctors” issue. Doctors in the magazine represent about a quarter of the top 10 percent of New York-area physicians, as determined by Castle Connolly.
Castle Connolly sends 12,000 nomination forms to medical professionals in New York City, Westchester County, Long Island, and portions of New Jersey and Connecticut. The forms ask recipients to nominate doctors who, in their judgment, are the best in their field and related fields, especially those to whom they would refer their own patients and family members.
