The selection process for Top Doctors listing begins with peer recognition through surveys that are given out to thousands of physicians and other healthcare leaders nationwide. They are asked to identify who they believe are highly skilled, exceptional doctors. Castle Connolly then reviews the peer-recommended list for standards, including medical education, training, board certifications, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements and malpractice and disciplinary history.

“Our physicians recognized by Castle Connolly are deserving of this prestigious accolade,” said Jerry Fedele, President and CEO of Boca Regional. “We congratulate them on the honor.”

Note: The list of Boca Regional physicians who made “Top Doctors” can also be viewed on Castle Connolly’s website (castleconnolly.com).
