STATE’S TOP DOCS
welcome to our annual Jersey
Choice Top Doctors issue. New Jersey
Monthly conducted its first survey of
the state’s doctors in April 1992. In
that issue, we named 100 docs in 15
specialties, based on the responses of
about 500 doctors around the state.
We’ve come a long way. This
month’s issue lists 1,069 practitioners
in 72 specialties. ( We explain our survey methodology on page 61.) While
the number of Jersey Choice doctors
is at an all-time high, it remains an exclusive group—representing about 4. 4
percent of the 24, 230 physicians who
received our survey.
Remember, the Jersey Choice list
is not intended to be the last word
on choosing a doctor. It’s one tool of
many, including direct referrals from
physicians and other health professionals, as well as recommendations
from friends and family. Still, we know
of no other list that exclusively and
extensively polls New Jersey doctors
for their opinions about their peers.
We believe that’s of significant value to
our readers—which is likely why this
is such a popular issue each year.
while we are surveying the state’s
doctors, we also like to examine how
medical care is delivered. In this issue,
we pull back the curtain on two important aspects of New Jersey’s healthcare establishment. First, we take you
inside one of the state’s three Level
I trauma centers for a powerful look
at the types of life-or-death dramas
that unfold on an hourly basis in the
trauma bays. Next, we shift the focus
to some of the pioneering treatments
being performed by medical practitioners and researchers around the state.
The issue also introduces you to Bonita Stanton, the pediatrician and educator who is charged with launching
New Jersey’s new medical school.
As always, we wish you good
health—and good reading.
