2023 ‘Top Doctors’ List Features Over 250 Yale Medicine Physicians


Connecticut Magazine’s 2023 'Top Doctors' list includes more than 250 Yale Medicine physicians who were selected by their peers as the best in their fields.

More than 250 Yale Medicine physicians have earned a spot on the 2023 Connecticut Magazine “Top Doctors” list.

Each year, Connecticut Magazine recognizes top physicians in dozens of specialties around the state, selected through an impartial peer review process. In other words, these are the doctors that other physicians recommend.

To compile the list, the magazine partnered with Castle Connolly, a leading national health care research company. Castle Connolly’s online nominations process is open to all licensed physicians in the United States, who are able to nominate doctors in any medical specialty and in any part of the country. Once nominations have been submitted, Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Doctors cannot pay to be selected as one of Castle Connolly's Top Doctors.

The complete “Top Doctors” list appears in the May 2023 issue of Connecticut Magazine. Below are the Yale Medicine physicians on the 2023 “Top Doctors” list. For more information on an individual physician, click his or her name below.
