Key Professional Media, the researcher and publisher of Super Doctors and Super Dentists, two nationally-leading physician rating services, releases listings of outstanding physicians from more than 41 medical specialties who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. We ask doctors and dentists to nominate one or more colleagues (excluding themselves) they would choose in seeking medical care. The Super Doctors research team then investigates further to find exceptional physicians to complement the results. Candidates are evaluated on the indicators of peer recognition, professional achievement and disciplinary history.
After being grouped into 41 medical specialties, professionals with the highest scores from each group are invited to serve on a blue ribbon panel and asked to evaluate the candidates in their specialty. Finally, physicians who acquire the highest total points from the surveys, research and blue ribbon panel are selected for inclusion the Super Doctors and Super Dentists listings.
Super Doctors and Super Dentists are published online and in print as a special advertising section in leading newspapers and city and regional magazines. – less
