The publication’s “Top Doctors” list was compiled by the New York-based research firm Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., whose physician-led team of researchers follow a rigorous screening process to select doctors named to the list. Castel Connolly was founded in 1991. The survey and research process involves tens of thousands of top doctors and the medical leadership of prominent hospitals across the country.

For the July 2012 “Top Doctors” feature, hundreds of Atlanta metro-area doctors were asked to name their most respected colleagues. The process sought nominations not only of physicians who excel in academic medicine and research but also those who exhibit excellence in patient care—those to whom nominating physicians would send their own families.
