This year, Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s 2021 “Top Doctors” recognized 188 University of Minnesota Physicians (M Physicians) doctors across 44 specialties.

“Top Doctors” are nominated by their peers, who are asked which physicians they would go to for medical care. Peer recognition, professional achievement, extensive research and disciplinary history are factors that determine which doctors are named to the list.

"We are incredibly proud of our doctors, and the exceptional patient care that they were able to provide this year––especially throughout the pandemic," said Bevan Yueh, MD, MPH, CEO of M Physicians and Vice Dean of Clinical Affairs at the University of Minnesota Medical School. "It is a tremendous honor for physicians to be nominated by their peers as some of the best doctors in the state.”
