Minnesota Oncology is proud to announce that 20 of our physicians representing all 11 of our clinic locations have been named “Top Doctors” this year by Mpls. St. Paul Magazine. This list represents one third of our physicians, most of whom are honored on other local lists such as Top Physicians for Women, Rising Stars, and Best Doctors. Four of the 20 physicians from Minnesota Oncology - Dr. Ellen Bellairs, Dr. Purvi Gada, Dr. David King, and Dr. Noel Laudi - were named to the Top Doctor list for the first time this year.
The magazine releases its 20th annual Top Doctors edition in July.
According to Mpls. St. Paul Magazine:
The 20th edition of our Top Doctors list includes 864 doctors in 45 specialties. Here’s how we put it together:
When compiling a list that’s as relied upon as our annual Top Doctors list, research is essential. We asked physicians to nominate one or more doctors (excluding themselves) to whom they would go if they or a loved one were seeking medical care. From there, candidates were grouped into 45 specialties and evaluated on myriad factors, including (but not limited to) peer recognition, professional achievement, and disciplinary history. Doctors who had the highest scores from each grouping were invited to serve on a blue-ribbon panel that evaluated the other candidates. In the end, only doctors who acquired the highest total points from the surveys, research, and blue-ribbon panel review were selected as Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s 2016 Top Doctors.
Of course, no list is perfect. Many qualified doctors who are providing excellent care to their patients are not included on this year’s list. However, if you’re looking for exceptional physicians who have earned the confidence and high regard of their peers, you can start your search here (or go to mspmag.com/medicalguide). In addition to the list you find here, this year’s crop of Top Doctors will join a prestigious group of doctors from more than 20 cities around the country who have been selected to Super Doctors, the full list of which you can find at superdoctors.com.
