Dr. Boynton has been selected as a “Top Doctor” in Plastic Surgery by U.S. News & World Report in 2012
Every year, U.S. News and World Report releases a peer-nominated list of the country’s top doctors. This year, Dr. James F. Boynton has been recognized as one of them. Partnering with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., publisher of America’s Top Doctors®, U.S. News’ goal in establishing the list was to single out credentialed doctors who specialize in a variety of fields and procedures and to assemble a knowledge base in which doctors from around the country can look to when referring patients to physicians in other fields. To be selected as a Top Doctor, candidates’ credentials and qualifications are evaluated by licensed doctors. Previously, nominations were obtained only from specific geographical locations; however, the nomination process is now conducted online and is available nationwide.
U.S. News’ “Top Doctor” list has built a strong foundation of data culled from Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors™ list. The physician-led research team carefully reviews qualifications for doctors being considered. By publishing the list of top doctors, patients can easily access a number of reliable and experienced doctors in a wide range of medical fields. Not only is the list beneficial for patients, but also for doctors looking to refer their patients to a licensed doctor in another medical field.
Doctors cannot nominate themselves, there is no application process, and they cannot pay to be selected. Participating doctors can submit up to 10 names for nomination in his or her own specialty, and up to 3 per specialty in other fields.
Dr. Boynton has been Voted to SuperDoctors® Texas Rising Stars
In 2012, Texas Super Doctors®, an organization listing outstanding physicians in more than 30 medical specialties, named Dr. James F. Boynton as a Texas Super Doctors® Rising Star. The honor goes to only a handful of young physicians in Texas who have been fully licensed for no longer than 10 years and have proven significant achievements in their careers. The honorees are nominated by a group of their peers, with input from a panel of selected Texas Super Doctors, plus a review by researchers at Key Professional Media. Inc. Dr. Boynton’s recognition will be listed in a special advertising section in Texas Monthly in the July 2012 issue.
In order to be selected to this elite list, doctors are identified through a multi-step process that evaluates their degrees of peer recognition and professional achievement. A survey of doctors is then conducted to determine the nominees – doctors cannot nominate themselves. A thorough review of each candidate’s credentials, professional achievements, and peer recognition is also part of the selection process. Once the nominations are in, and research as well as the blue ribbon panel review have been conducted, points allotted for each of these criteria are totaled, resulting in the highest-scoring doctors being named to the Rising Stars list.

Furthermore, the Castle Connolly physician-led research team conducts several phone calls with leading specialists, chairs of clinical departments, and vice presidents of medical affairs in an effort to identify top specialists for a comprehensive array of diseases and procedures.
The peer nominated doctors then undergo a rigorous screening – also conducted by the Castle Connolly research team – which includes a review of credentials such as medical educations, training, hospital affiliations, disciplinary histories, and more. Following the final screening, those doctors who are considered among the elite in their respective specialties and communities are selected for inclusion on the “Top Doctors” list. No medical professional can pay to be included in any Castle Connolly Guides®, magazine articles, or online directory.
Castle Connolly conducts this “Top Doctor” selection process with the utmost integrity and thoroughness, ultimately ensuring patients all over the United States have the information necessary to receive the most effective and ethical healthcare available.
