2017-2018 Best Doctors In Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson Counties

Oct 29, 2018 09:36AM ● By Kathleen Maris
Founded in 1989 by Harvard Medical School physicians, Best Doctors connects individuals facing difficult medical treatment decisions with the best doctors, selected by impartial peer review in more than 450 medical specialty/subspecialty combinations, to review their diagnosis and treatment plans. 

Best Doctors’ team of researchers conducts a biennial poll using the methodology that mimics the informal peer-to-peer process doctors themselves use to identify the right specialists for their patients. Using a polling method and proprietary balloting software, they gather the insight and experience of tens of thousands of leading specialists all over the country, while confirming their credentials and specific areas of expertise

The result is the Best Doctors in America List, which includes the nation’s most respected specialists and outstanding primary care physicians in the nation. These are the doctors that other doctors recognize as the best in their fields. They cannot pay a fee and are not paid to be listed and cannot nominate or vote for themselves. It is a list which is truly unbiased and respected by the medical profession and patients alike as the source of top quality medical information.
