Nearly 300 UW Health Physicians Named to "Top Doctors" Lists

Madison, Wisconsin - Nearly 300 UW Health physicians have been named to various "top doctors" lists in the last 12 months, with 52 named to the most recent list: "U.S. News Top Doctors," a new, searchable directory that lists peer-nominated physicians around the country.

 

From September 2010 until today, 281 UW Health physicians have been listed on one or more of the lists developed by Boston-based Best Doctors.com, the Madison Magazine list of best doctors, and U.S. News Top Doctors.

 

The U.S. News list was created in collaboration with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., which publishes America's Top Doctors and other consumer health guides. It draws from Castle Connolly's database of Top Doctors, all recommended for their clinical skills by other doctors. All nominated physicians are then individually reviewed by a doctor-led research team.

 

The UW Health physicians represent a broad range of departments, including medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, surgery, ophthalmology, cancer care, urology, neurology, neurosurgery, radiology, dermatology, rheumatology, anesthesiology, psychiatry, pathology and orthopedics. All are faculty of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health.

 

"This list recognizes what we already know - that the UW-Madison medical faculty includes some of the top doctors in the nation," said Dr. Jeffrey Grossman, CEO of UW Medical Foundation, the University of Wisconsin doctors' group practice. "I'm happy to congratulate so many of my colleagues on this recognition."


"Patient care is the cornerstone of everything that we do at our school," added UW School of Medicine and Public Health Dean Dr. Robert Golden, "and it's gratifying that so many of our physicians have received this recognition."

 

The Castle Connolly list is based on nominations from doctors in academic medical centers, specialty and regional hospitals and those in private practice. Its research team then reviewed each nominee's training, achievements and appointments, along with other credentials.

 

The US News list permits searches for a top doctor by location, hospital affiliation, and a full range of specialties and sub-specialties.
