We would like to congratulate Dr. Michael Redler, Dr. James Spak and Dr. Daniel Weiland for being recognized by Connecticut Magazine as Top Doctors in the field of Orthopedics for 2017! This award is given to specialists by their peers and recognizes their commitment to excellent patient care.
How the Doctors Were Chosen
For our annual survey update, we sent more than 5,000 questionnaires to Connecticut doctors, asking them to recommend a doctor (other than themselves) to whom they would send a loved one for expert medical care. In this year’s survey, the focus was on eight specialties: anesthesiology, obstetrics & gynecology, oncology & hematology, otolaryngology (ear, nose & throat), physical medicine, radiology, rheumatology and colorectal surgery.
The top vote-getters in those categories made the Top Docs listings, along with all those doctors in other specialties who finished at the top of our surveys from the years 2014-16. We’ve done our best to update all the doctors’ information along the way. Note: Doctors do not pay to make this list; only the doctors most frequently recommended by their peers are listed as Top Docs.
The result is 811 doctors in 31 specialties, in all the result of more than 15,000 questionnaires sent out over a four-year period. With such a wide array of specialties covered, this guide makes a very good place to begin your search for medical help.
