Northeast Medical Group physicians on “Top Docs” List

A total of 88 Northeast Medical Group physicians and more than 570 affiliated with Yale New Haven Health – which includes Bridgeport, Greenwich, Yale New Haven and Lawrence + Memorial hospitals in Connecticut, and Westerly Hospital in Rhode Island, - have been selected for Connecticut Magazine’s 2021 Top Doctors in America list, published in the June 2021 issue. 

Top Doctors are selected by impartial peer review in over 450 medical specialty/subspecialty combinations. A team of researchers conducts a biennial poll using a method 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 nationwide, while confirming their credentials and specific areas of expertise.

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

YNHHS-affililated physicians representing more than 60 specialties comprise 42 percent of the total list. The complete list is available online at; search for “Top Doctors 2021.”
