Selections are made through a national survey of physicians and hospital administrators conducted by Castle Connolly Medical, an independent research and information company that is the nation's leading provider of information on physicians. After the votes are tallied, Castle Connolly ensures that the physicians meet the company's criteria, which include board certification, years of experience in their specialties, and a clean disciplinary record.

The physicians will be honored by Gulfshore Life magazine at an awards banquet.
