Top Doctors 2018

Top Doctors 2018

Virginia Living contracted with Data Joe Research, a software and research company specializing in data collection and verification that conducts various nominations across the United States on behalf of publishers, to create the Virginia Living Top Doctors list. Data Joe Research facilitated an online peer-voting process and also conducted a research campaign, referencing various government and public sources. After collecting nominations and additional information, Virginia Living created a composite score for each doctor, factoring in frequency of nomination, years of experience, and Board certification. Virginia Living checked and confirmed that each published winner had, at time of review, a current, active license status with the appropriate state regulatory board. If we were not able to find evidence of a doctor’s current, active registration with the state regulatory board, that doctor was excluded from the list. In addition, any doctor who has been disciplined, up to the time-frame of our review process, for an infraction by the state regulatory board was excluded from the list. Finally, Data Joe Research presented the tallied result to Virginia Living for its final review and adjustments.


We recognize that there are many good doctors who are not shown in this representative list. This is only a sampling of the huge array of talented professionals within the region. Inclusion in the list is based on the opinions of responding doctors in the region and the results of our research campaign. We take time and energy to ensure fair voting, although we understand that the results of this survey nomination are not an objective metric. We certainly do not discount the fact that many, many good and effective doctors may not appear on the list.
