78 University of Chicago Medicine physicians named to 2020 “Top Doctors” list

Center for Care and Discovery

Seventy-eight University of Chicago Medicine physicians were named “Top Doctors” in the Chicago area based on a selective annual list published by Chicago magazine.

The Hyde Park-based academic medical center had more doctors than any other hospital on the 2020 report. The UChicago Medicine clinicians accounted for 21% of the 356 doctors selected from the city and suburbs. In some specialty categories, such as cardiac surgery and pulmonology, only UChicago Medicine physicians were chosen.

The annual roster is based on data collected from Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a health care research and information company. The doctors are nominated by their peers nationwide and considered based on their clinical excellence, bedside manner, education and board certifications. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected.
