Best Doctors in Hawaii 2011
The list of the 397 best doctors in Hawaii was determined by the doctors themselves.
Our annual “Best Doctors” list is researched by Best Doctors in America, which surveys physicians nationwide, asking, “If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?” From that survey, we share the Hawaii doctors with our readers.
The process is more elaborate than that, and you can read about it in detail at the Best Doctors website, bestdoctors.com. The list is impartial, and no doctor may buy his or her way onto the list—two reasons we’ve trusted it as a source.
There are more than 8,000 physicians in the state, the 397 included here are the best of the best. However, that doesn’t mean you should worry if you don’t see your current doctor here. The Best Doctors in America methodology favors specialists and doctors at larger, urban hospitals, who are more likely to have a higher profile than their peers at smaller, rural facilities. If you’re happy with your current doctor and don’t see her or him on the list, even Best Doctors in America would assure you that there’s no need to switch.
