UH Physicians Named “Best Doctors” by Cleveland Magazine 2018

The clinical expertise of University Hospitals physicians is both broad and deep, according to the latest issue of Cleveland Magazine. Nearly 300 UH physicians have been named “Best Doctors” in the publication’s annual issue spotlighting clinical excellence. UH had representatives on the list from 62 specialties (See complete list below).

In evaluating physicians, Cleveland Magazine partnered with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. Its physician-led research team reviewed those physicians nominated by their peers as providing the most outstanding health care. Physicians do not and cannot pay to be selected as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor.
