Top Doctors 2005

Health care is a science and an art. It’s a practice steeped in tradition on a swiftly changing landscape. As the practice of medicine has grown more complex, people increasingly look to physicians to provide a sense of trust and clarity. Each year, New Hampshire Magazine surveys the state’s physicians asking them, if they or a family member were sick, who they would go to for diagnosis or treatment. The results of the 2005 survey are in and Top Doctors have been selected in 42 specialties. Here are the doctors who have been chosen by their peers. We also spotlight the 2005 Nurse of the Year, and feature medical advances that have taken place in the state’s hospitals during the past year.
