Madison Magazine asked Dane County physicians to name top doctors in 73 medical, pediatric and surgical disciplines that they would recommend to their family and friends. Generally, 3 to 6 physicians per specialty are listed; more than 200 in total. Such a list is reputation-oriented and based on personal experience, and does not necessarily reflect actual performance data. Number of respondents to survey is not shown. As with all Top and Best physician lists, you’ll want to check multiple sources. Updated May 2018 (biennial list). No updates in 2020, 2021, or as of Sept. 3, 2022.
