Top Docs: The List

Our annual, must-have guide to the best physicians—337 of them in more than 90 medical specialties—in the Mile High City.

January 2013

Each listing includes the physician’s name, the number of times he or she has been on the Top Docs list in the past (if applicable), the hospitals at which the physician has privileges, the doctor’s office address, and the best phone number to call for an appointment. We also note if a doctor is not currently accepting new patients.
