Top Doctors is the first and only directory of top doctors and centers of excellence in Spain.
Top Doctors is the first and only directory of top doctors and centers of excellence in Spain, designed to help consumers find the best healthcare. Whoever doctor you choose, you will get right! This is because our list of top doctors is based on peer nominations and professional assessments by our physician-led research team and Adecco Medical & Science - not on hype, advertising, or third parties that have something to gain by recommending a particular provider. Top doctors are rigorously selected from among hundreds of thousands of physicians. Our intensive research methodology is designed to identify doctors that will speed patients' healing, minimize pain and discomfort, shorten recovery periods and enhance and lengthen lives - in other words, achieve the best possible health outcomes.
Our mission is to ensure that finding the best doctor of each medical speciality and sub-specialty is a privilege that should be available to everyone. Furthermore, by using our website you can easily make an appointment online and access a wide variety of articles published by our top doctors.
Why this initiative?
The company was founded in 2012 by Alberto E. Porciani, CEO of Top Doctors, and Lorena Bassas, General Manager Spain, two respected leaders in healthcare.
In 2013 Top Doctors signed a strategic alliance with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. Its mission, since its founding more than 20 years ago has been to help consumers find the best healthcare by identifying top doctors in USA. Based on years of experience working at New York Medical College, John K. Castle, Chairman of Castle Connolly Medical Ltd, and Dr. John Connolly, President and CEO, understood that many consumers needed assistance in identifying top doctors. Mr. Castle and Dr. Connolly decided the best way to locate the very best physicians was to do exactly what doctors do: ask other doctors. As a result of this intensive research process, its years of experience and the medical professionals leading the company, Top Doctors has become the nation’s most-trusted source for identifying top doctors.
Top Doctors can have an enormous impact. For patients and their families, the value of receiving first-class medical care is great but unquantifiable - it's measured in quality and even length of life.
What makes us different?
Our selection process differentiates us from other medical directories or online listings.
Today such independent assessment of medical care is more important than ever. Anyone can draw up a "best of" list - and many organizations do. Pharmaceutical companies favor those physicians who are high prescribers of their drugs. To many health insurers, a physician's fees are often a more important factor than quality. Many magazines and websites recommend health care providers who pay to get their names mentioned. But op Doctors has no such conflicts of interest. Our sole purpose is to help patients, their families and their employers find health care providers who deliver superior results.
After a physician's name is submitted by colleagues as part of our nomination process for consideration as a Top Doctor, our physician-led research team delves into the professional records of top nominated physicians in order to ascertain those that have exceptional training, experience and are highly regarded by their peers. In addition, disciplinary histories and malpractice actions, when available, are also carefully scrutinized.
Only 1 in 10 doctors exceed our section process. This process ensures that only physicians who have accredited medical excellence can join Top Doctors. And it is important to remember that being the best does not necessarily mean being the most expensive.
We want our platform to become the most reliable and effective source of heathcare information and doctors selection for patients worldwide.
Following the consolidation in Spain and our strategic alliance in USA, our next step will be to extend our service throughout Europe and LATAM.
