This year, 209 Emory physicians are included in the "Top Doctors" list, making up 58 percent of all of the top doctors recognized in the issue.

More than half of the physicians recognized in this year’s "Top Doctors" issue of Atlanta magazine are Emory Healthcare doctors, Emory Healthcare Network doctors or Emory University School of Medicine faculty. The July issue can be found on magazine stands throughout metro-Atlanta.
 
This year, 209 Emory physicians are included in the list, making up 58 percent of all of the top doctors recognized in the issue. Patients can find these doctors at one of six Emory Healthcare hospitals, throughout 200 provider locations, and within the Emory University School of Medicine.
 
"We celebrate and thank all of our physicians and their support teams for providing tremendous care to our patients and their families every day," says Michael J. Mandl, president and CEO of Emory Healthcare. "As both Emory Healthcare and its network of physicians continue to grow, Emory’s ‘top doctors’ are now accessible throughout much of the state, making it easier for patients to find superb physicians and excellent health care closer to home."

Established in 2011, the Emory Healthcare Network is Emory’s clinically integrated network through which access to coordinated patient- and family-centered care is provided. With six hospitals, 200 provider locations and 1,800 physicians in more than 70 specialties, including 220 primary care physicians, the Emory Healthcare Network is the largest clinically integrated network in the state of Georgia.

The network joins together Emory-employed and private practice physicians in communities throughout metro Atlanta and the state, in collaboration with Emory Healthcare, into a single comprehensive care management system. By collaborating around a common set of quality measures and goals, the Emory Healthcare Network creates a level of accountability that ensures patients and families receive the standard of care they expect and deserve.

To compile the annual "Top Doctors" list, Castle Connolly uses a survey and research process involving tens of thousands of top doctors across America and the medical leadership of leading hospitals. Atlanta's top doctors are selected after peer nomination, extensive research, careful review and screening by Castle Connolly's doctor-directed research team. Atlanta magazine uses the research by Castle Connolly to provide detailed information about education, training and special expertise of Atlanta doctors. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly "Top Doctors".
