Doctors’ names are arranged alphabetically by specialty, followed by their subspecialties or areas of special interest if the doctor has provided them. Next comes the doctor’s primary hospital affiliation, followed by his or her telephone number.

We have abbreviated hospital names (see “Index to Hospitals” for full names, addresses, and telephone numbers). Some doctors may have a broader range of practice than the location indicates, since certain hospitals are members of a larger association, such as the NorthShore network. Contact prospective doctors to be sure that none of their information has changed since publication.


About Castle Connolly

Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. is a health care research and information company founded in 1991 by a former medical college board chairman and president to help guide consumers to America’s top doctors and top hospitals. Castle Connolly’s established survey and research process, under the direction of an MD, involves tens of thousands of top doctors and the medical leadership of leading hospitals.

In June 2011, Castle Connolly expanded its nomination process and now invites all licensed physicians to participate in the nomination process to help Castle Connolly identify regionally and nationally outstanding doctors. The nomination process can be accessed only online at

Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Careful screening of doctors’ educational and professional experience is essential before final selection is made among those physicians most highly regarded by their peers.

The result: Castle Connolly identifies the top doctors in America and provides consumers with detailed information about the doctors’ education, training, and special expertise in its paperback guides, national and regional magazine “Top Doctors” features, and online directories.

Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors.

Physicians selected for inclusion in “Chicago’s Top Doctors” may also appear as Regional Top Doctors online at or in one of Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors guides, such as America’s Top Doctors® or America’s Top Doctors® for Cancer. Castle Connolly’s print guides are available online at, by telephone at 800-399-DOCS (3627), and at all major bookstores.
