About Best Doctors, Inc.
Best Doctors, Inc. of Boston, MA and Aiken, SC is the global leader in providing information about, and access to, the best medical care in the U.S. and around the world. For over a decade, the company has been conducting the largest independent surveys of the medical profession to identify the doctors that other doctors consider to be the best in their specialties. The Best Doctors surveys also identify outstanding local primary care physicians.
The Best Doctors polling methodology is designed to mimic the informal peer-peer referral process that doctors themselves use to identify appropriate specialists for their patients. The company has expanded this local process to include regional and national groups of physicians. Using extensive proprietary polling and balloting software, the company’s peer- reviewed surveys bring together the insights and experience of tens of thousands of leading specialists all over the country, eliminating the biases that can distort smaller-scale surveys
The proprietary 2013-2014 Best Doctors in AmericaÒ database includes more than 30,000 doctors in 43 specialties and over 400 subspecialties, representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia. These are the doctors that other doctors recognize and turn to for themselves and their families. And since doctors are not required nor allowed to pay a fee to be listed, Best Doctors has gained the respect of the medical profession and patients alike as an unbiased source of top quality medical information
Best Doctors uses its database to support a family of high-touch, as well as web-based services that link individuals with serious illness to these expert medical specialists for second opinions or treatment. The company has developed detailed profiles of the doctors in its database, (special areas of research, diagnoses treated most often, etc), enhancing its ability to guide individuals to the doctors most experienced to advise on and/or treat the illness in question. In addition, all doctors are checked for licensing and certification requirements and for any disqualifying disciplinary actions. Individuals requiring access to these services may contact the company at 800-675-1199, or through its award-winning web site www.bestdoctors.com
