"We are proud of our physicians, nominated for this honor by their peers because of their excellent clinical skills and care and concern they give to their patients," says Jonathan S. Lewin, MD, president, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Emory Healthcare. "As Emory Healthcare and its network of physicians continue to grow, our goal is to provide extraordinary health care, via our 'Top Doctors' and beyond, in all reaches of our state."

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 magazine's "Top Doctors" are selected after peer nomination, extensive research, careful review and screening by Castle Connolly's doctor-directed research team. The 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."
