As the coronavirus has upended the state – especially the health of Georgia residents – the expertise of our doctors has been more important than ever. This year, Georgia Trend is proud to offer the second annual listing of the state’s top physicians.

These outstanding practitioners represent specialties that run the medical spectrum from addiction medicine to vascular surgery and can be found throughout the state.

The list was created in partnership with DataJoe Research following the methodology listed below, which included peer voting and reviewing government sources.

Congratulations to all who made this year’s list. And thank you for taking care of us during this very challenging time. – The Editors

Methodology and Disclaimers Summary. DataJoe Research is a software and research company specializing in data collection and verification, and conducts various nominations across the United States on behalf of publishers. To create the “top doctors” list, DataJoe Research facilitated an online peer-voting process, also referencing government sources. DataJoe then tallied the votes per category for each doctor to isolate the top nominees in each category. After collecting nominations and additional information, DataJoe checked and confirmed that each published winner had a current, active license status with the state regulatory board. If we were not able to find evidence of a doctor’s current, active registration with the state regulatory board, that doctor was excluded from the list. In addition, any doctor who has been disciplined, up to the time-frame of our review process for an infraction by the state regulatory board, was excluded from the list. Finally, DataJoe presented the tallied result to the magazine for its final review and adjustments.Final note. We recognize that there are many good doctors who are not shown in this representative list. This is only a sampling of the huge array of talented professionals within the region.Inclusion in the list is based on the opinions of responding doctors in the region and the results of our research campaign. We take time and energy to ensure fair voting, although we understand that the results of this survey nomination are not an objective metric. We certainly do not discount the fact that many, many good and effective doctors may not appear on the list.Disclaimers.
