Minnesota Monthly's Top Doctors

The Twin Cities is full of medical experts specializing in many forms of care and prevention. These doctors dedicate their time, work, and research to the health and longevity of the people that live here.

This page features the 2017 Top Doctors list, professionals nominated by their peers and recognized for their expertise.


Professional Research Services contacted more than 10,000 licensed doctors in the 11-county metro area, as well as Olmsted County, based on a list provided by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice. Respondents were asked to log on to a secure website and name up to three doctors (other than themselves) in each specialty category. Physicians who received the highest number of votes are reflected by specialty in the Top Doctors list.
