Loyola physicians make list of top doctors

Move over, U.S. News and World Report. The magazine may rank Loyola University Chicago as one of the top universities in the country, but it’s not the only publication to come out with a prestigious list. 

Thirty-two Loyola University Health System physicians have been named to Chicago Magazine’s 2010 list of Chicago’s Top Doctors.

The list was compiled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a health-care research and information company. Castle Connolly surveyed physicians and the medical leadership of leading hospitals to identify “highly skilled, exceptional doctors.”

Loyola doctors on the list have earned the esteem of their colleagues by excelling in Loyola’s three primary missions — patient care, cutting-edge research and medical education.
