2020 ‘Best Doctors’ List Features Over 200 Yale Medicine Physicians


Connecticut Magazine’s 2020 'Best Doctors' list includes over 200 Yale Medicine physicians who were selected by their peers as the best in their fields.

The past few months have brought 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 “Best Doctors” issue.

This year, Connecticut Magazine's “Best Doctors” list includes more than 200 Yale Medicine physicians in 50 specialties, selected through an impartial peer review process. The complete “Best Doctors” list appears in the June 2020 issue of Connecticut Magazine and on the Connecticut Magazine website.

The magazine partnered with the health care organization Best Doctors to compile the annual list of the state’s top physicians. According to Connecticut Magazine, "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."

The result is "The Best Doctors in America" list. “These are the doctors that other doctors recognize as the best in their fields,” according to Connecticut Magazine.

Below are the Yale Medicine physicians on the 2020 “Best Doctors” List. For more information on an individual physician, click his or her name below.
