Physicians Named Among Chicago's 'Top Doctors'

Physicians at the University of Chicago Medicine once again are being honored among Chicago's 'Top Doctors' in a ranking by Chicago magazine. A total of 88 physicians at the University of Chicago Medicine and Comer Children's Hospital are among the approximately 350 "outstanding metro-area doctors" named in the January 2016 issue. Honorees were nominated by physicians nationwide who were asked to consider such factors as clinical excellence, bedside manner, education and board certification.

Chicago magazine worked with the health care and information research firm Castle Connolly Medical to create the list, which also appears in the 14th edition of America's Top Doctors.
