Congratulations to Dr. Gabel, recipient of the 2023 Top Doctor Award by Castle Connolly. For the fifth year in a row, Dr. Gabel has received this prestigious award for his dedication to providing exceptional care to his Portland Hair Transplant patients.
What is the Castle Connolly Top Doctor Award?
Each year, Castle Connolly compiles a unique database of board-certified physicians from which they select the most exceptional providers for the Top Doctor award. Physicians must be selected based on their merit and cannot enter the listing through other means. For over 25 years, only select physicians have been able to claim this award for their rigorous dedication to their fields. The goal of Castle Connolly’s Top Doctor list is to help patients recognize the most qualified, outstanding doctors in the United States when selecting a provider for their needs.
How Does Castle Connolly Choose Top Doctors?
Every year, Castle Connolly takes a survey of physicians and healthcare providers around the United States. Physicians nominate each other based on a variety of criteria including patient trust and experience, clinical care, interpersonal skills, and more. Next, Castle Connolly’s team of leading experts, department chairs, and other exceptional leaders in medicine review the nominated doctors and assess their credentials. All materials are finally reviewed and announced each year. According to Dr. Gabel, “I am very proud to receive this prestigious recognition from my peers and patients. It is truly an honor.”
Castle Connolly’s selection process is renowned for its reliance on unbiased, rigorous selection. Doctors are selected solely for their medical excellence and patient relationships, making Castle Connolly’s Top Doctor list one of the most trustworthy indicators of truly great doctors in the United States.
