2016 Top Doctors in Hawai‘i
If you don’t see your doctor here, that doesn’t mean he or she isn’t a great physician. A lot of factors go into choosing Top Doctors, which you can read about online at castleconnolly.com. As with all our professional series, no one can buy his or her way onto the list.
You will notice some changes from previous years’ lists: Each doctor is listed under just one specialty, even if he or she is board-certified in multiple areas. Anyone with special expertise, such as in cosmetic dermatology or breast cancer, will be marked with a +. You can find out what that expertise is online at honolulumagazine.com/hawaiitopdoctors at the end of September, when we’ll publish a searchable database of all the doctors listed here. Castle Connolly also declined to include specialties primarily recommended by other doctors including anesthesiologists.
We’ve only included one address for each, though many doctors practice at multiple locations across the state. This information changes throughout the year, and we wanted this list to contain only the most up-to-date information. Always make sure to call ahead and ask if you’re thinking of switching to a new doctor.
