The U.S. News Top Doctors list was created in collaboration with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., publisher of America's Top Doctors and other consumer health guides, drawing from Castle Connolly's database of peer-recommended physicians.

U.S. News Top Doctors is a free searchable directory available at that lists nearly 30,000 peer-nominated physicians across the country. The list builds on the 22nd annual Best Hospitals rankings released last week, which ranked Advocate Illinois Masonic as one of the Best Hospitals in the Chicago metro area. The Best Hospital list is available at

Castle Connolly assembled the roster of Top Doctors by soliciting nominations from physicians in academic medical centers, specialty hospitals, regional hospitals and physician practices. Its research team then reviewed each nominee's training, achievements and appointments, among other credentials.
