The doctor’s medical background, board certifications, disciplinary history, malpractice, training, education and more are all taken into account by the research team.

Selected physicians remain under constant review to determine that they are continuously meeting the qualifications. Removal from the list does not necessarily reflect negatively on the physician. A physician can be removed for various reasons, including retirement, change in practice, assuming an administrative position, disciplinary issues and more.
