So we broke down the in nuances of how Doctors are selected for the top medical professional guide, Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors, but how does the Castle guide keep its list accurate, prestigious and finely tuned to reflect the best of the best of South Florida today. The truth is it is an ongoing process that stops at nothing and for nothing to ensure that every edition reflects the most in-depth list as realistically possible. The Castle Connolly list is removed of physicians at will if the selection team’s judgment feels it is warranted. The reasons for removal span a variety of possibilities from retirement, professional demeanor, disciplinary issues, negative physician or patient response, unavailability to patients, to malpractice or a change of practice. It should be noted a removal from the guide does not always reflect a negative development on the physician and by no means do the Castle guides claim to include every single excellent physician in the nation or region. Those selected in the Castle process are however, clearly among the nations and regions best. The pursuit of discovering and inclusion of these “missed” exceptional doctors remains a focus of the Castle guides which is reflected by the process we outlined in volume one where peers, professionals and consumers can submit their suggestions for their research team to review.
The informative and in-depth physician information included in the Top Doctor guides are acquired from the selected doctors. Those selected are asked to submit an all-inclusive professional biography form covering comprehensive information regarding their areas of expertise and specialties. This submission is then included in each doctors specific listing in the guide. With annual updates performed every year, the Castle research staffs are able to tweak the list to accurately reflect any changes in doctor information and reflect these changes in the doctor’s profile. With no way of paying their way in, doctors are legitimately scrutinized and examined before being selected in order to maintain the integrity and unbiased approach to the guide. Through peer reviews, nominations and a professional and proven research team of physicians the Top Doctor selection by Castle Connolly serves as a prestigious and honorable guide to local medical professionals spanning a multitude of specialties and areas.
