The mission of Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. is to help consumers find the best healthcare. To this end, we publish a variety of books including the "Top Doctors" series, the most popular of which is America's Top Doctors®. The doctors who are listed in our books and on this website's directory were nominated by their peers in an extensive survey process of thousands of American doctors each year. These Top Doctors' medical educations, training, hospital appointments, disciplinary histories - and much more - are screened by the Castle Connolly physician-led research team. Those doctors who are among the very best in their specialties and in their communities are selected for inclusion. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be included in any Castle Connolly Guide or online directory, www.castleconnolly.com.
Castle Connolly offers individual and corporate memberships to its website along with a number of corporate products and services such as a New Movers Program, a Doctor-Patient Advisor Service and Castle Connolly LifeStream MD service.
