Bringing the best to you: Hundreds honored as “Top Doctors” by Minnesota Monthly in 2020

This year, 350 physicians representing 49 medical specialties from across our health system have been named Top Doctors by Minnesota Monthly.
Infectious Disease Physician Susan Kline, MD, MPH, is one of 350 doctors in our system who was honored by Minnesota Monthly in 2020.

Compassion. Dedication. Innovation.

Those are a few of the values that continue to propel our doctors to the top of Minnesota Monthly’s yearly “Top Doctors” list. This week, we are honored to announce that 350 physicians from Fairview, M Physicians, and the independent clinics in our network have been recognized as high-performing doctors by the magazine in 2020. That’s more than any other health system in Minnesota.

“Congratulations to our exceptional Top Doctor honorees,” said Mark Welton, MD, the Fairview chief medical officer. “They exemplify the clinical excellence, community focus, and drive to improve healthcare that distinguish the M Health Fairview system.”

Minnesota Monthly has published the “Top Doctors” list since 2014. To compile the 2020 Top Doctors list, the magazine asks thousands of physicians from the 11-county Twin Cities metro area as well as Olmsted County which providers they would choose to care for their own health or the health of a loved one. The providers who are named most often by their peers are selected for inclusion on the list.

This year, the magazine honored more than 900 total doctors from a variety of Minnesota healthcare systems. Our winners represent 49 different medical specialty areas—so no matter what type of care you need, one of our experts has you covered.

“We’re delighted to have the highest number of doctors on the list this year. The fact that we have honorees in so many medical specialties demonstrates that our system is prepared to offer you top-notch care, no matter the nature of your healthcare need,” said Bevan Yueh, MD. MPH, interim CEO of M Physicians.
