The survey found that the highest-ranking dermatologists work primarily in an outpatient setting where patients can schedule direct appointments with the respective dermatologists as opposed to in patient settings. 


The 2022 America’s Top Dermatologists lists the highest-scoring dermatologists in the 20 most populous U.S. states. During the survey period from February to April 2022, more than 2,200 dermatologists, medical professionals, administrators, and managers who work in outpatient practices, were invited to an online survey via 

From the survey, 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. For cosmetic dermatologists, participants were also able to specify a standout treatment (Laser, Injectables, Body contouring) for the recommended dermatologists. Doctors who have received several recommendations for one of the two standout treatments received an additional designation.
