Top Doctors

Local physicians name their picks for the state’s best specialists.

If you or a member of your family had a medical problem, who would you select as the best specialist?” This is the very important question we asked 2,500 of the state’s licensed physicians in our annual top doctors survey.

Those polled were eager to give us their answers, and while there are many excellent physicians who aren’t on this list, these are the names that appeared most frequently in our survey: 152 of the state’s most dedicated doctors.
 
In addition to our list of Rhode Island’s top doctors, in this issue we also focus on two fascinating new trends in medicine.

“In Your Corner” chronicles the round-the-clock medical care that doctors provide to seriously ill patients once they’ve been admitted to a hospital. If you’re a patient in one of Rhode Island’s twelve acute-care hospitals, these are the people you want as your advocates.

In “The Doctor Is Always In,” we take a look at a small but growing community of primary care doctors who are following the Ideal Medical Practice model. This streamlined approach to medicine allows physicians to reduce their overhead and rely more on technology to shoulder administrative burdens, so they can spend more time with their patients.
