ColoradoBiz Magazine’s Best Doctors for Executives

Choosing the right doctor can be one of the most important life decisions, though the importance of it often becomes evident only in retrospect. For business executives, that choice – whether it’s a primary-care physician or a specialist – takes on greater significance because of work demands.

Of course, you don’t have to be an executive in the corner office to know that time spent waiting on a doctor’s appointment – or worse, time spent out of work due to health issues – can be costly. Thus, finding the right match in a doctor is always worth the effort.

With that in mind, we present for the first time Best Doctors for Executives. The 121 doctors on the following pages cover a range of specialties, including: cardiology, internal medicine, oncology and hematology, orthopaedic surgery and urology.

Also among these standouts are doctors in the field of consierge medicine, a practice growing in popularity as it typically features same-day appointments, 24-hour access and individualized attention that executives and others find ideally suited to their demanding schedules.

Our list is excerpted from The Best Doctors in America® 2011-2012 database, which includes more than 45,000 doctors in more than 40 medical specialties. Listings begin on page 44.

FAQs

How are these physicians selected?

Best Doctors Inc., a 23-year-old company founded by doctors affiliated with Harvard Medical School, contacts physicians in the Colorado region who have been included on a previous Best Doctors list and asks them,
"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.

Is the list updated annually?

Yes. Each year, 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?

Absolutely not.
