This year, 358 Emory doctors (50 percent) out of 720 were included in the list. Patients can find these doctors at Emory Healthcare hospitals, throughout 200 provider locations, and within the Emory University School of Medicine.

Established in 2011, the Emory Healthcare Network is Emory's clinically integrated network for providing ccess to coordinated patient- and family-centered care. Throughout its hospitals, 200 provider locations and 2,000 physicians in more than 70 specialties, the Emory Healthcare Network is a one-stop-shop for all health care needs.

To compile the annual "Top Doctors" list, Castle Connolly uses a survey and research process involving tens of thousands of top doctors across America and the medical leadership of leading hospitals. Atlanta magazine's "Top Doctors" are selected after peer nomination, extensive research, careful review and screening by Castle Connolly's doctor-directed research team. The magazine uses the research by Castle Connolly to provide detailed information about education, training and special expertise of Atlanta doctors. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly "Top Doctors."
