To compile the list, Mpls.St.Paul Magazine invited physicians to nominate one or more doctors (excluding themselves) to whom they would go to if they or a loved one were seeking medical care. Candidates were then grouped into 45 specialties and evaluated on many factors, including peer recognition, professional achievement and disciplinary history. Doctors with 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 the blue-ribbon panel review were selected as Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s 2017 Top Doctors.
