Toronto's 30 Best Doctors

This city is the hub of medical research in Canada, with dozens of state-of-the-art facilities and new labs opening all the time. And Torontonians are the lucky beneficiaries, with access to fantastically talented doctors—they’re the stars of the medical world and the people who may well save your life.

Below, we profile these stars—the city’s top physicians. To assemble the list, we spoke to prominent figures in the city’s medical community and polled nearly 1,000 Toronto doctors, asking them to nominate the best practitioners in prominent specialties—everything from cancer care to urology. We asked respondents to take into account a ­nominee’s skills, reputation and contributions to a medical field. Here are the doctors other doctors would trust with their lives.
