I have an uncommon medical specialty. I'm afraid I'll be overlooked in the balloting. What can I do?
Our research team evaluates candidates on 10 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement. They find this information by looking at bios on hospital and clinic Web sites. If your Web site bio is not current and complete, you may update the information here at my.superdoctors.com.
I want to know who nominated me. Will you tell me?
No. We maintain strict confidentiality over the balloting process.
If I am notified that I have been selected, is there anything I need to do?
Yes! Please complete the data verification process. This verifies your current contact and professional information and ensures the accuracy of what we publish.
I was listed in Super Doctors last year but not this year. What happened?
We perform a new round of balloting and blue ribbon panel review each year, so the list undergoes some degree of change from year to year. Being listed one year does not guarantee that you will be published the following year.
May I nominate doctors from outside my area?
Our formal nomination page is designed to accept nominations only from medical professionals within your area. However, if you click on the Comment on/Evaluate tab at the top of this page, you'll be invited to provide feedback on doctors on this year's list or doctors from other areas.
