The Ohio State doctors listed as Best Doctors in America are faculty members at one or more of the OSU-owned or affiliated hospitals.

The Best Doctors Inc. database for 2005 contains names of about 33,000 doctors in the United States, all who have been chosen through a peer-review process in which thousands of doctors have participated. Only physicians who earn the consensus support of their peers are included in the list.
