ince 1996, Jacksonville Magazine has published a variety of lists of First Coast healthcare professionals considered to be the best or most qualified and the most respected in their fields. In the following pages, we highlight some 800 Northeast Florida physicians who practice in 13 select specialties and are certified by the board that sets the standards for these particular specialties. These doctors go above and beyond what is professionally required and have committed to keeping up-to-date in their fields. The requirements to attain and retain board certification are explained in further detail within each specialty list. The physician names listed were provided to Jacksonville Magazine by each specialty board in late April. Most boards will verify for the public whether a particular doctor is, in fact, certified by that board. In addition, this year we have includ-ed a list of area healthcare providers with the distinction of “Recognized Doctor” from HealthGrades, a leading healthcare ratings organization based in Denver that provides profiles of hospitals, nursing homes and physicians to consumers, corporations, health plans and hospitals. Millions of consumers and hundreds of the nation's largest employ-ers, health plans and hospitals rely on HealthGrades’ ratings, consulting and products to make healthcare decisions based on the quality of care. The public is invited to visit HealthGrades’ website for additional physician info. The strength of the HealthGrades website is that it allows the user to research physicians by specialty and location. From there, HealthGrades provides information regarding the practitioner’s education, specialty, location, accepted insurance and any history of malpractice, sanction or board action. This compilation of doctors is exten-sive, but it has its limitations—and undoubtedly, some doctors with strong reputations may be excluded for one reason or another. We encourage using it as a reference tool among many, a starting point to help you make informed decisions about your health. Speak with friends, other patients and your primary care physician. Then, test the doc out yourself because in the end, the opinion that matters most when it comes to what or who ranks highest is your own.
