Memphis' Top Doctors

A national survey lists the very best physicians in Memphis.




Decisions, decisions. Every day, it seems, we are forced to make an important decision that affects our life, our family, our home. What bank should we use? What stocks should we invest in? Where can I get the best bargain on a new car? And these days, who sells the cheapest gas?

But none of those choices is as important to your health and well-being as finding a good doctor. That's hard enough when you are well, and have plenty of time to research area physicians, check the list of providers on your insurance company's website, or talk to friends about their experiences. Finding the best doctor becomes considerably more stressful when you — or someone you love — falls ill.

To help our readers find the very best physicians in town, we present out 2008 guide to the city's Top Doctors. With just 50 physicians named here, representing 28 specialties, this is one of the most exclusive lists of specialists that we have ever published.

And it's certainly not based on our own opinions. To compile this important list, we contacted the New York-based research group Castle Connolly Medical, which annually conducts national surveys of the best doctors in America. Their physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select the best doctors on both the regional and national levels. Using mail and telephone surveys, as well as electronic ballots, they asked physicians and the medical leadership of leading hospitals to identify highly skilled, exceptional doctors.

Our list is arranged alphabetically by specialty. After that, we provide the doctor's name, the name and address of their group or clinic, their phone number, their areas of expertise, and their hospital affiliation.

Remember that choosing a physician is an important, and very personal, decision. If you are happy with the care you are receiving from your doctor, there is no reason to change physicians. But if you've just moved to Memphis, are searching for a new doctor, or perhaps need access to a specialist, this list can be your guide to some of the most qualified physicians in the Memphis area. >>>
