Newsweek Health: Top Cancer Doctors 2015

According to the NIH/National Cancer Institute, in 2015 an estimated 1,658,370 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States, and 589,430 people will die from the disease.

Newsweek, in conjunction with Castle Connolly Medical LTD, the well respected publisher of America's Top Doctors®, is proud to present the list of the “Top Cancer Doctors 2015 ” for the United States.

This list was compiled through peer nominations and extensive research that Castle Connolly Medical LTD. has conducted for more than two decades.

The Castle Connolly physician-led research team makes tens of thousands of phone calls each year, talking with leading specialists, chairs of clinical departments and vice presidents of medical affairs, seeking to gather further information regarding the top specialists for most diseases and procedures. Each year, Castle Connolly receives nearly 100,000 nominations via this process. After a careful review of credentials, the following physicians have been selected to be a part of the Newsweek “Top Cancer Doctors 2015” list.
