The past few years have brought increased attention to the vital work that health care providers do every day. Each year, Connecticut Magazine recognizes some of the exceptional physicians who perform this work with its annual “Top Doctors” issue.

This year, Connecticut Magazine's “Top Doctors” list includes more than 200 Yale Medicine physicians in dozens of specialties, selected through an impartial peer review process. In other words, these are the doctors that other physicians recommend. The complete “Top Doctors” list appears in the May 2022 issue of Connecticut Magazine and on the Connecticut Magazine website.

The magazine partnered with Castle Connolly, a leading national health care research firm, to compile the annual list of the state’s top physicians. Castle Connolly's extensive survey identified 1,568 Connecticut physicians in 67 specialties, all nominated by their peers and vetted to meet the criteria to earn the designation of Top Doctors.

This year, Connecticut Magazine also included 33 "Rising Stars"—Connecticut physicians who are too early in their careers to earn a "Top Doctors" designation, but who were selected for recognition by Castle Connolly based on peer nominations and acknowledgement of outstanding accomplishments and dedication to the field of medicine.

Below are the Yale Medicine physicians on the 2022 "Rising Stars" list and “Top Doctors” list. For more information on an individual physician, click his or her name below.
