2013 Best Doctors for Executives
For the second straight yearMike Taylor
The adage "health equals wealth" applies to everyone, and for business executives it’s not only true in the figurative sense. Simply put, optimum workplace productivity requires wellness – a healthy body and mind. And yet, finding the right doctor – whether it’s a primary-care physician or a specialist – can be a daunting, time-consuming task for an executive or anybody else beginning such a search with no reference point.
That is why ColoradoBiz is pleased to present, for the second time, Best Doctors for Executives. The doctors on the following pages cover a range of specialties, including: internal medicine, cardiology, dermatology, oncology and hematology, urology and orthopedic surgery. See the complete list here: http://www.cobizmag.com/uploads/BestDocs.pdf
Also included are standout doctors in concierge medicine, an increasingly popular option for patients today. Concierge practices typically provide same-day appointments, 24-hour access and personal attention that executives and others find ideally suited to their busy schedules.
Our list is excerpted from The Best Doctors in America® 2013 database, which includes more than 45,000 doctors in more than 40 medical specialties. Listings begin on page 36.

How are these physicians selected?
Founded in 1989 by Harvard Medical School physicians, Best Doctors conducts one of the largest, ongoing peer-to-peer physician surveys within healthcare to identify the doctors other doctors trust most by asking "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, to whom would you refer them?"
What happens to the newly nominated doctors?
Best Doctors checks for licensing and certification requirements, and any disqualifying disciplinary actions. Doctors who withstand the company’s vetting process are added to the list.
HOW OFTEN IS THIS LIST UPDATED?
Every two years, Best Doctors contacts the offices of every doctor for thorough fact-checking (location, phone number, clinical activity, etc.).
The list is updated accordingly.
Can physicians pay Best Doctors or ColoradoBiz Magazine to be listed?
