‘Top Docs’: In Vote Of Peers, 203 From Hartford HealthCare Now On Connecticut Magazine List

April 05, 2017

If you asked a doctor to recommend another doctor, would that make you feel as if you just received some good-as-gold inside information?

It’s a tempting nugget that Connecticut Magazine has been mining for several years with its “Top Docs” survey. For their 2017 edition, the cover story in the magazine’s April edition, the editors sent out more than 5,000 questionnaires to state doctors asking, after they recused themselves, where they would send a loved one for expert medical advice.

Often, the answer was send the loved one to a Hartford HealthCare doctor, with 33 among the top vote-getters in this year’s survey that focused on eight specialties: anesthesiology, obstetrics and gynecology, oncology and hematology, otolaryngology, physical medicine, radiology, rheumatology and colorectal cancer. That pushes Hartford HealthCare’s total to 203 doctors on the Top Docs list of 811 doctors in 31 specialities compiled annually since 2014.
