Over 250 Bridgeport Hospital-affiliated physicians on Connecticut Magazine’s 2021 Top Doctors list

Wednesday, June 2, 2021

BRIDGEPORT, CT (June 2, 2021) – Over 250 physicians affiliated with Bridgeport Hospital are among the more than 660 from Yale New Haven Health included on Connecticut Magazine’s Top Doctors list for 2021.

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 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 Top 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 unbiased and respected by the medical profession and patients alike as the source of top quality medical information.

The complete list of Connecticut Magazine’s Top Doctors appears in the June edition, also available online at Enter “Top Doctors 2021” in the search box.
