168 Children’s Minnesota physicians recognized as Top Doctors by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine

List exemplifies the commitment to high-quality care demonstrated by physicians during the COVID-19 pandemic

MINNEAPOLIS (July 7, 2021) – Children’s Minnesota is honored to have 168 physicians recognized by Mpls.St.Paul Magazine as 2021 Top Doctors. The 25th edition of the list includes 816 local physicians from across the Twin Cities in 46 specialties.

Dr. Gigi Chawla, vice president and chief of general pediatrics at Children’s Minnesota, appeared on the cover of the issue and spoke to the magazine about the evolution of pediatrics during her career.

“It’s a great honor to have so many of our physicians recognized for their dedication to providing high-quality, family-centered care to our patients, especially during the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Emily Chapman, senior vice president of medical affairs and chief medical officer at Children’s Minnesota. “We’re proud to have a remarkable team of kid experts here at Children’s Minnesota dedicated to being every family’s essential partner in raising healthier children.”

Congrats to our Top Doctors!

Research for Mpls.St.Paul Magazine’s Top Doctors list began by asking metro-area physicians to nominate one or more doctors whom they would choose if they or a loved one were seeking medical care. From there, candidates were grouped into specialties and evaluated on myriad factors, including peer recognition, professional achievement, extensive research and disciplinary history. Doctors who received the highest total points from the surveys, research and blue-ribbon panel review were selected at 2021 Top Doctors.

The complete list of 2021 Top Doctors appears in the July issue of Mpls.St.Paul magazine.
