America's Top Doctors

Physicians at Weill Cornell Medicine are among the best in the country — but don’t take our word for it.

Our doctors are listed among the top 1 percent of the nation’s physicians and among the top 10 percent of the region’s specialists by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a New York City research and information company that publishes the annual guidebooks America’s Top Doctors and Top Doctors: New York Metro Area, which informs New York Magazine’s annual “Top Doctors” issue.

This year, 278 Weill Cornell Medicine physicians across 69 medical specialties have been included in the 2020 guides. We congratulate them and applaud their efforts to raise the standards of medicine even higher.

To compile “Top Doctors” lists, Castle Connolly turns to 250,000 leading doctors each year, asking them to name the nation’s best physicians in various specialties. The company encourages the doctors to identify the experts “to whom you would send members of your family.”

The most important criterion for physician selection was excellence in patient care. Other criteria included education, residency, board-certification, fellowships, professional reputation, hospital affiliation, medical school faculty appointment, experience and disciplinary history.
