The Castle Connolly selection process for the Top Doctors listing begins with peer recognition through surveys that are given out to thousands of physicians nationwide and other healthcare leaders. They are asked to identify who they believe are highly skilled, exceptional doctors. This peer-recommended list is then reviewed by Castle Connolly for standards including medical education, training, hospital appointments, professional achievements and any disciplinary or malpractice history.
“While our entire staff is known for their clinical excellence, we salute these 42 physicians for such special recognition,” said Jerry J. Fedele, President and Chief Executive Officer at Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
