A New York City research and information company called Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. publishes an annual guidebook, Top Doctors: New York Metro Area, which lists what it has determined to be the top 10 percent of the region's physicians. For the past eight years, Castle Connolly has been providing New York Magazine with a shorter version of this list for the magazine's "Best Doctors" issue. These doctors represent the top 2 percent of New York area physicians, as determined by Castle Connolly.
For 2011 - 2012, 125 of Weill Cornell's physicians are ranked as among the best by New York Magazine in their survey.
