Mpls.St.Paul Magazine recognizes 128 M Health physicians as “Top Doctors”

The magazine released its 19th annual Top Doctors edition this week. Each of the doctors named were chosen by their peers.
A total of 128 University of Minnesota Health doctors and 152 UMPhysicians doctors were chosen by their peers for inclusion in the Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s 2015 “Top Doctors” list.

University of Minnesota Health is proud to announce that 128 of our physicians, representing 39 medical specialties, were named “Top Doctors” this year by Mpls. St. Paul Magazine.

The magazine released its 19th annual Top Doctors edition this week, features 128 University of Minnesota Health physicians representing 39 specialties. A total of 152 UMPhysicians doctors, representing 20 percent of all the magazine’s listings, were named in the magazine’s rankings. University of Minnesota Health represents a collaboration between University of Minnesota Physicians and University of Minnesota Medical Center.

The magazine’s Top Doctors rankings are determined by a survey sent to 2,500 physicians and 2,500 registered nurses, who indicate which doctors they would go to in pre-selected specialties. Physicians who receive the top 15 percent of the vote in each specialty are featured in Mpls. St. Paul Magazine. Survey participants are randomly selected from the State of Minnesota’s list of licensed physicians and nurses in the 10-county metro area.

Top Doctors is only one of many ways our physicians receive recognition from their peers and other governing medical institutions. Earlier this month, five of our pediatric specialties were ranked nationally in U.S. News and World Report’s annual “Best Children’s Hospital” list.
