About the Best Doctors Poll

Since 1989, Best Doctors Inc. has conducted one of the largest ongoing peer physician polls in health care to identify the physicians other physicians trust most. We start by asking: “If you or a loved one needed a physician in your specialty, to whom would you refer?”

Best Doctors example of mobile services provided via cell phone...All listed Best Doctors have received a consensus of their peer physicians support. Once a physician receives consensus, s/he is researched and verified for clinical activity, licensure and disciplinary actions.

A selected Best Doctor doesn’t remain in the database forever. The peer-review process requires that every listed Best Doctor physician be re-evaluated by their peers in each poll. Best Doctors does not pay physicians to be included in the database, nor can physicians or their organizations pay Best Doctors. A physician cannot apply to become a Best Doctors physician. The only way for a physician to be selected to the database is to be nominated by and then receive voting consensus from Best Doctors physicians.

As a result, Best Doctors has a proprietary, global database of expert physicians — free from commercial and financial bias – numbering more than 50,000 in over 450 specialties and subspecialties.

Best Doctors Inc. is not a list company and does not publish a directory of the database. It was founded by Harvard Medical School professors and, in 2017, became a part of Teledoc Health, a large provider of virtual care delivery. Teledoc is a telemedicine company that uses telephone and videoconferencing technology to provide on-demand remote medical care via mobile devices, the internet, video and phone.
