Fairview and Partners Dominate 2018 ‘Top Doctors’ List

Mpls.St.Paul Magazine recognized 362 of our providers and partners – more than any other health system.

Looking for a doctor you can trust with your care? Here’s a place to start: Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s 2018 list of Top Doctors.

Fairview’s providers and partners made a strong showing, with 362 winners – more than any other health system. That number includes providers from Fairview, HealthEast, University of Minnesota Physicians, and independent clinics that are part of our provider network.

Top Doctors are nominated by their peers. The magazine asks doctors who they'd choose if they or a loved one were seeking medical care.

“The physicians recognized as ‘Top Doctors’ have earned the trust and respect of their peers, which speaks volumes about the level of compassion, expertise, and insight they bring to caring for our patients,” says Mark Welton, MD, Fairview’s chief medical officer. “I congratulate them on this well-deserved recognition.”
