How We Did It
D Magazine mailed a letter to nearly 4,300 local doctors, encouraging them to visit www.dmagazine.com to cast their votes for the Best Doctors in Dallas. In our confidential online poll, we asked them to name two physicians they would send their patients or loved ones to in 40 specialties. Only those with a valid Texas medical license were eligible. An outside marketing firm tallied the results, and a panel of esteemed local physicians reviewed the list prior to publication. This list is designed with the patient in mind; therefore, under the guidance of the panel, we did not include specialties in which the patient has little or no say, such as anesthesiology or pathology. Nor did we include pediatrics, which is vast enough to warrant its own feature story (last published in April 2007). We also admit that these specialties are broad in some instances. This list is extensive but by no means inclusive. If you don’t see your doctor on the list, and it is someone you like and trust, you should stick with him.
