Meet our “Top Doctors.” 400+ physicians from across our system honored by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine

In 2020, Mpls.St.Paul Magazine recognized 403 providers from across our system as Top Doctors – more than any other Twin Cities healthcare system.
Genevieve Melton-Meaux, MD, is one of more than 400 physicians from across our system to be included in Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s Top Doctors list this year.

Each year, Mpls.St.Paul Magazine publishes a comprehensive list of Top Doctors in the Twin Cities. And year after year, doctors from Fairview, M Physicians, and the independent clinics in our network continue to rank among the best.

In 2020, we’re proud to announce that Mpls.St.Paul Magazine has recognized 404 of our doctors representing 48 medical specialties. More of our physicians made the list than any other health system in the Twin Cities.

Top Doctors are nominated by their fellow physicians, who are asked which doctors they would choose if they or a loved one were seeking medical care. From there, candidates are grouped into dozens of specialties and evaluated on many factors including peer recognition, professional achievement, extensive research and disciplinary history. Each year, the doctors who acquired the highest total points from the surveys, research and a blue-ribbon review panel are named to the list.

“All of our doctors have demonstrated their exceptional commitment to our communities time and again during the COVID-19 pandemic this year,” said Mark Welton, MD, the Fairview chief medical officer. “To see their compassion, hard work, and expertise reflected in this recognition is a remarkable honor.”

“Being selected by your peers as a Top Doctor is a great honor,” said Bevan Yueh, MD. MPH, interim CEO of M Physicians. “Congratulations to all of our physicians who made the list and continue to offer the best patient care available in the state.”
