Each year, Atlanta magazine conducts a survey of the top physicians in the metro Atlanta area. We are very pleased to announce that in this year’s Top Doctors issue (released in June), 97 of the 251 top doctors honored are Emory Healthcare doctors and Emory School of Medicine faculty.
To determine which Atlanta doctors should place in this year’s Top Doctors list, a physician-led team of researchers from Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., an established health care research firm, employed a meticulous research and screening process (detailed in June’s Atlanta magazine). Part of the research and selection process involved surveying physicians about which doctors they themselves would recommend. As noted in the Atlanta magazine feature, “who better to recommend a good doctor than another doctor? That’s why we asked hundreds of metro area doctors to name their most respected colleagues.”
In addition to the Top Doctors List, Atlanta magazine also compiled a list of the 22 best hospitals in Atlanta. Nearly 30% of the “five-star” hospitals selected are Emory Healthcare facilities, including Wesley Woods Geriatric Hospital, Emory University Hospital and Emory University Hospital Midtown.
We are very proud of the continued level of excellence displayed by all facets of the Emory Healthcare system. Our physicians, nurses, and top of the line facilities continue to advance the possibilities for the way patient centered care is provided in Atlanta and the Southeast.
