In selecting physicians for Super Doctors, MSP Communications employs a rigorous multi-step process designed to identify physicians who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Super Doctors is a selective yet diverse listing of outstanding doctors, representing consumer-oriented medical specialties.
Survey of Doctors
We evaluate candidates on 10 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement.
Blue Ribbon Panel Review
The Final Selection
The Super Doctors Rising Stars selection process
The selection process for Rising Stars and for Super Doctors are the same except:
While approximately 5 percent of the physicians within the respective state or region are named to Super Doctors, no more than 2.5 percent are named to the Rising Stars list.
Even if selected, a candidate's name will not be published on the Super Doctors list unless all information is confirmed prior to publication. Licensed and active physicians with a "Doctor of Medicine" degree (MD) or a "Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine" degree (DO) are eligible to register.
Super Doctors reserves the right to remove candidates and selectees if we determine that they do not meet eligibility, research, and review criteria.
Super Doctors identifies top doctors as selected by their peers and the independent research of MSP Communications.
Super Doctors is published online and also in print as a special advertising section in leading newspapers and city and regional magazines.
