Minnesota Oncology medical oncologist Patrick Flynn, MD, has been named by Newsweek as a “Top Cancer Doctor 2015” for the United States. Dr. Flynn treats patients at our Woodbury Clinic and is a member of the Executive Committee of the Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology. The Association of Community Cancer Centers honored him with the David King Community Clinical Scientist Award for his outstanding service, leadership, and commitment to the oncology community.
According to Newsweek, the physician list was created in conjunction with Castle Connolly Medical LTD, the publisher of America's Top Doctors®. The Castle Connolly physician-led research team makes tens of thousands of phone calls each year, talking with leading specialists, chairs of clinical departments and vice presidents of medical affairs, seeking to gather further information regarding the top specialists for most diseases and procedures.
Each year, Castle Connolly receives nearly 100,000 nominations via this process. The list is included in the Newsweek Cancer Issue 2015 dated July 31.
