Chosen by their peers in every field, from primary care to the most esoteric of specialties, the more than 1,200 physicians on New Yorks newest Best Doctors list are exactly the men and women you want on your case.

And weve highlighted ten remarkable M.D.s who exemplify what it means to be a great doctor. Plus: Garrison Keillor on the difficulties of selecting one great doc from all those names.
