Top Doctors 2013

Our Annual List Of The Very Best Physicians In Memphis




We humans are complicated creatures. Lucky for us that medical care is becoming more specialized every year. Whether it’s our big toe or our small intestine, our throbbing head or our nagging back, we can find a doctor for most any body part that ails us. And not just any doctor, but the best in his or her field.

Memphis is fortunate to claim many outstanding physicians who devote their careers to medical treatment and research. In light of their contributions, we offer this list of the top doctors in Memphis.

The list was compiled by the New York-based research group, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., which annually conducts national surveys of the best doctors in America. Their physician-led team of researchers has selected the best physicians on both regional and national levels, and in various fields, from cardiovascular and endocrinology, to internal medicine and hematology.

The list is arranged alphabetically by specialty. Within each specialty, Castle Connolly provides the doctors’ names, hospital affiliations, the names and addresses of their groups or clinics, their phone numbers, and their areas of expertise. Also within each section are photographs of doctors whose names have graced this list numerous times in recent years.

We hope this survey’s results will lead you, our readers, not only to the most acclaimed physicians in a specific field, but will also shed light on the caliber of medical care and research taking place right here in Memphis.
