BTB Advertiser Puget Sound Consumers’ CHECKBOOK magazine wants our Readers to know that they can help you find a local doctor:

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a doctor in the family? Someone you could count on for sound advice, especially about which physicians you should choose to get the best possible health care for yourself and the people who matter most in your life? Not everyone has that level of access to a trusted physician, but nonprofit Consumers’ CHECKBOOK’s Consumers’ Guide to Top Doctors makes the referrals doctors would give to their own families available to all consumers. And when a loved one needs medical care, that information can prove invaluable.

For the Consumers’ Guide to Top Doctors, CHECKBOOK, which also publishes Puget Sound Consumers’ CHECKBOOK magazine (available at www.checkbook.org), surveyed 340,000 doctors and asked each of them to identify two physicians in each of 34 specialty fields that he or she “would consider most desirable for care of a loved one.” The Guide includes 23,500 physicians most often recommended by their peers, and is a go-to resource for thousands of consumers in the Puget Sound area and across the country. It is available in print or online, at www.checkbook.org/doctors.

“The Consumers’ Guide to Top Doctors does for consumers what I as a physician do myself—find out from my colleagues who the best doctors are,” said Haya Rubin, MD, PhD, of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

The Consumers’ Guide to Top Doctors lists the doctors recommended most often in each specialty and provides the information in a simple-to-use format, listing each physician’s:

  • Number of peer recommendations
  • Medical school attended
  • Year of graduation
  • Board certifications
  • Office addresses and phone numbers

The Consumers’ Guide to Top Doctors also offers practical advice on how to select a doctor, standards of care to expect from a physician, and how to decide whether it’s time to change doctors.
