Top Doctor

Each spring, Washingtonian Magazine asks nearly 13,000 doctors in DC, Maryland, and Virginia to tell them which colleague they would recommend in a variety of specialties. To ensure the data’s accuracy, each physician was sent an online survey and obliged to log in with a current medical-license number registered in either the District, Maryland, or Virginia. Doctors could submit just one ballot each and could not vote for themselves. The top vote-getters in each of 39 categories were designated Top Doctors.
