NOTE: Per Chicago's contract with Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., the list is not currently online, but the magazine is available for purchase now on newsstands and in digital form.

Tapping into its vast database of the area’s best doctors, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. has prepared the list of some of the best pediatricians in metropolitan Chicago. Doctors’ names are arranged alphabetically by specialty. Those listed under “Pediatrics” have a general practice with children. Following the doctor’s name is his or her subspecialty or area of special interest (if the doctor has provided that information). The next item notes the doctor’s primary hospital affiliation (where applicable), followed by his or her telephone number.

On our list, we have abbreviated hospital names. That information should help indicate whether a doctor practices in your area. Keep in mind, however, that some doctors may have a broader range of practice; they may be affiliated with more than one hospital, and some hospitals are members of a larger association. For instance, Evanston Hospital, Glenbrook Hospital, Highland Park Hospital, and Skokie Hospital are all members of the Evanston-based NorthShore University HealthSystem.

Castle Connolly and Chicago have made every effort to provide the most current information. Readers are encouraged to call prospective doctors to make sure that none of their information has changed since publication of this guide.


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. 

Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Using mail and telephone surveys, as well as electronic ballots, they ask physicians and the medical leadership of leading hospitals to identify highly skilled, exceptional doctors. 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 this list 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.
