Over 50 Percent of 2019 Atlanta “Top Doctors” are Emory Physicians

2019 Atlanta Magazine Top Doctors CoverAtlanta magazine’s 2019 July issue features the annual listing of Top Doctors in the metro Atlanta area. Once again, we are proud to announce that Emory physicians make up more than half the list – more than any other health system in Atlanta.

Emory physicians represent 55 percent of the 860 total doctors recognized – 469 to be exact. These physicians include those who practice at one of our 11 hospitals and over 250 provider locations, as well as those who hold faculty positions at the Emory University School of Medicine.

“We are pleased to have so many excellent physicians across multiple specialties represented in the 2019 ‘Top Doctors’ list,” says Jonathan S. Lewin, MD, president, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Emory Healthcare. “These physicians are highly regarded and selected by their peers for this recognition. We thank them for the superior care and dedication they give to our patients and their families every day.”

We honor, celebrate and thank all of our 2019 Atlanta Top Doctors—and their outstanding care teams—for providing exceptional care to our patients and families, and for truly making patient- and family-centered care their priority each day.


As our Emory Healthcare family continues to grow, so does our ability to provide healthcare throughout the metro Atlanta area. We want to make healthcare convenient to where you are with locations that are easily accessible. Whether you need your yearly checkup or you are dealing with a complex condition, we take pride in what we do as individuals, and as part of a team. The Emory Difference is all around you.

Atlanta Magazine

Atlanta magazine’s Top Doctors list was compiled by Castle Connolly, recently acquired in late 2018 by Everyday Health Group, one of the world’s most prominent digital healthcare companies. To compile the annual “Top Doctors” list, Castle Connolly uses a survey and research process involving tens of thousands of top doctors across America and the medical leadership of leading hospitals. Atlanta’s top doctors are selected after peer nomination, extensive research, careful review and screening by Castle Connolly’s doctor-directed research team. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly “Top Doctors.” Atlanta magazine uses the research by Castle Connolly to provide detailed information about education, training and special expertise of Atlanta doctors.
