Problem with top 10 listings

When I'm searching for doctors in Victoria, Australia, and click on "Top 10's" the site immediately reverts to California USA
There is no option for searching Top 10's outside of America, with the options only being US states
How do I search top 10's locally?
Thank you

For top 10 listings, if a

For top 10 listings, if a physician has two offices (which may be far from each other), why do both locations take up two spots on the top 10 listing? For example, say someone has an office in New Jersey and New York, they show up as number 1 and 2 even though searching top 10 near new jersey. Shouldn't only their new jersey location show up?

Take a close look at how practitioners are ranked within a given specialty. The reanking uses a weighted average. A doctor rated at 4.2 may rank higher than one at4.8 if the former has more ratings closer to its average. It would appear that the system uses the weighted rankings in displaying the "top ten" extending to the search radius necessary to display ten names.

In the case of my locale, this has resulted in including more doctors from another area outside the searched area, the areas being only two miles apart. That's fine, if one has a boat or their car floats. Otherwise, taking the circular route is a ten to twenty mile drive, or further.
