Each year Boston Magazine has a story listing the city's top doctors. I hesitate to comment on the methodology they use -- especially in light of my advocacy of more objective metrics -- but I know they are absolutely correct when they list one of our doctors! I only regret they didn't survey me so I could have recommended the other 700+ who work in our hospital.
