During the survey period from February to April 2022, over 2,200 dermatologists were invited to an online survey. Additionally, medical professionals and administrators/ managers who work in outpatient practices across the u.s. were invited to participate on the online survey via Newsweek.com.
During the survey period, over 5,400 votes for dermatologists in the 20 most populous u.s. states were collected and analyzed.
A score was calculated for each dermatologist based on the number of recommendations and a quality score (as assessed by the peer survey). In-state recommendations were weighted higher than out-of-state recommendations and the quality score. In-state recommendations were 45 percent of the final score, out-of-state recommendations 40 percent and the quality score 15 percent. For cosmetic dermatologists, participants were also able to specify a standout treatment (laser, injectables, body contouring) for the recommended dermatologists.
