This list of the "best doctors" is about as credible as getting voted on to a high school prom court. It would be more of a benefit for the individuals of Cleveland to be exposed to a legitimized directory of doctors, whose names would appear due to excellent patient outcomes, versus these fables with simply 'Dr.' ahead of their name- who just won a popularity contest.

dr. onders is no fable. i cannot vouch for the rest but he and dr nearman are top docs.

some of the physicians are not even IN Practice in their speciality. I guess if you dont count if you are not part of cleveland clinic or university systems. You have to have better ways to rate doctors as this current list is seriously flawed

The comment from "real health-care reformists" represents puerile thinking. The childish fantasy that there is some way to quantify "excellent patient outcomes" and generate a "legitimized directory of doctors" should be outgrown just about the time one takes off the training wheels.

The 'Best Docs' registry is a popularity contest, reflecting to whom a nonscientific ion of physicians would refer family for a serious medical problem. Can you think of a better way to capture quality?

How can a "best doc" list include a doctor who has had his license suspended?

Dear Real Health Care Reformist:
Did you lose the popularity contest in high school? Is that why you are so bitter toward a little recognition?
