How does D Magazine determine which doctors make the list? 
Best Doctors in Collin County is a peer-review voting process. We rely on the doctors’ expertise to determine who deserves to be on the list, just like a doctor would recommend a patient to a specialist. This year, we mailed a letter to 8,283 local doctors from our online directory inviting them to vote using a ballot on our website. They could vote for up to three doctors in 38 categories. The nomination form asked them to vote bearing in mind the following question: which Collin County doctors would you trust with the care of a loved one? This year, 6,448 votes were cast by 572 doctors. We vetted each voter’s Texas medical license status to ensure they were valid. We then sent the results to an outside marketing firm to tally the votes. We presented the tallied list to an anonymous panel of esteemed physicians. The panel and D staff reviewed the tallied results and decided the finalists based on the number of votes in each category. Once the list was finalized, D confirmed each doctor’s Texas medical license status and board certification, and investigated each doctor’s disciplinary status.
