New Haven, CT (April 3, 2018) A total of 332 Yale New Haven Hospital-affiliated physicians and more than 400 from across Yale New Haven Health – which includes Bridgeport, Yale New Haven, and Lawrence + Memorial hospitals in Connecticut, Westerly Hospital in Rhode Island, and Northeast Medical Group – have been selected by their state colleagues for Connecticut Magazine’s 2017-2018 Best Doctors in America list in the April 2018 issue.

Connecticut Magazine’s selection methodology recently changed when Hearst Media acquired the publication. The list is now compiled by Best Doctors, which undertakes a peer-to-peer survey every two years. Only currently listed Best Doctors can submit nominations for doctors who, in their judgment, are the best in their field. The “Best Doctors” issue features more than 800 physicians representing scores of specialties. The full list can be found in the April 2018 issue of Connecticut Magazine or here: http://www.connecticutmag.com/article_af095394-27da-11e8-b933-9b11a0051c15.html.
