Kansas City magazine’s annual Top Doctors list is compiled by a trusted national health care research and information company, Castle Connolly. A physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors through a nomination process that is open to all licensed physicians in America. The results are then carefully screened. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected for the Top Doctors list.
