The Post hopes to make that serious undertaking easier for its readers with the following list of some of the finest doctors in town.

The list comes from the latest edition of "America's Top Doctors: The Nation's Leading Medical Specialists," a highly regarded "who's who" of medicine published by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd.

Slightly fewer than 4,000 doctors out of 650,000 in the United States made the cut for the book, with New York City having more than its fair share of honorees.

The listing was based on recommendations from more than 250,000 ofdoctors nationwide, with the publisher's research team conducting thousands of interviews to winnow down the candidates.

Along with the doctors' names, the book lists office addresses and phone numbers, admitting hospitals, medical schools, board certifications and areas of special expertise.

Following are the names of some of the key medical specialties covered in the book - and the New York City doctors who are listed. All practice in Manhattan unless otherwise noted.
