November 2023: Top Doctors
Choosing a doctor is not a simple task. There are a number of factors that go into making that very important decision, and they’re different for every New Jerseyan.
This issue of New Jersey Monthly features our annual list of the Top Doctors in the state, with 1,044 practitioners in 73 specialties earning the honor this year.
As with our Top Dentists list released in July, the methodology behind the Top Doctors list is a very important piece of the puzzle to understand before you begin perusing. We hope you use this list as a starting point for finding a doctor. Always do your own research and get as much information as possible before making a decision.
We also spotlight a number of issues affecting patients and the medical community, as well as physicians doing interesting work here in New Jersey.
