Blog banner 2021 Top docs

Three UT Health Austin physicians were recognized as Top Doctors in the January 2018 Issue of Austin Monthly magazine. These physicians were nominated by other licensed physicians as the best in their medical specialty or among the best in the nation in their medical specialty. Each physician nominee is carefully screened based on their educational and professional experience by a physician-led team of Castle Connolly researchers who select top doctors on a national and regional level.

How are doctors selected for Austin’s Top Doctors?

Austin Monthly’s Top Doctors are selected by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a healthcare research and information company to help guide consumers to America’s top doctors and top hospitals. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors.

Physicians selected for inclusion in Austin Monthly’s Top Doctors may also appear online at castleconnolly.com, or in conjunction with other Castle Connolly Top Doctors databases online or in print.
