Top Doctors Hall of Fame

Meet the Best of 417-land’s medical best, year after year after year.

(page 1 of 6)

Since 2002, 417 Magazine has been asking local physicians whom they’d recommend—in many different medical specialties—to loved ones or friends who needed medical care. Their answers became six different Top Doctors lists from 2002 to 2009. This year, we’re honoring every single physician who has made those lists over the years, both as winners or as runners-up. They represent the best of the best in 417-land’s medical world, and we hope the list will be helpful to you in your search for medical care.

The years that each physician won are listed under his or her contact information. Please note that the specialties listed are the ones on the Top Doctors ballots, and the physicians who won were voted into those categories by their peers. In some cases, the physicians actually have a different specialty, and we made note of those exceptions. Doctors who have retired, passed away or moved out of the region are not listed.
