Let's say you wanted to find the very best ovarian cancer specialist in the US. How would you go about doing that?

Assume that money, travel issues, health insurance, etc. are not an issue. You just want to see the very best doc. How do you find him/her?
I am asking specifically with regards to ovarian cancer, which is frequently diagnosed late and which has dismal survival statistics. (And yes, this is about my bestie. See my question history if interested.) So, "best" would probably mean the person who is the most tuned-in to advances in treatment, since the current and historical treatment end up with almost all patients dead in a relatively short period.
