The lists, which are part of the magazine’s December 2017 issues, are developed in partnership with Castle Connelly Medical Ltd, a health care research company. The review of the area’s best physicians includes doctors in more than 50 specialty areas. According to Castle Connelly, their research methodology is designed to identify doctors that will speed patients' healing, minimize pain and discomfort, shorten recovery periods and enhance and lengthen lives - in other words, achieve the best possible health outcomes.
