A newly released list names hundreds of Vanderbilt Health physicians as being among the nation’s top providers of health care.

America’s “Top Doctors” is a peer-recommended list published by Castle Connolly. The methodology involves asking physicians in both academic and private practice from across the country to participate in the nomination process by identifying colleagues across numerous specialties who demonstrate excellence.

According to Castle Connolly, the list is made up of the top 7% of physicians in the nation.

“The large number of Vanderbilt physicians included on the list is testament to the talent, skill and dedication of our faculty and integrated physicians,” said C. Wright Pinson, MBA, MD, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Chief Health System Officer for Vanderbilt University Medical Center. “I want to congratulate these individuals and express my appreciation for their ongoing commitment to our patients. They are a crucial piece of what makes VUMC’s clinical care so excellent.”

To compile the Top Doctors list, Castle Connolly researchers vet each physician’s professional qualifications, education, hospital and faculty appointments, research leadership, professional reputation, disciplinary history and outcomes data. Additionally, a physician’s interpersonal skills such as listening and communicating effectively, demonstrating empathy, and instilling trust and confidence, are also considered in the review process.
