Readers are advised to review the certification of the healthcare providers listed below and consult with their own physician before proceeding with a care plan. Some doctors may be too busy to admit new patients, but they often have partners to help them or they can recommend a doctor from another practice. I think you will find this list useful to narrow your search for the best doctors in your area. If you are interested in being added to the list or would like to present your practice to Kidlist readers, please contact Annie at [email protected].
As the next medical crisis looms, it is reassuring to know that some of the 350 doctors listed here have won the trust of their fellow physicians and patients.
Founded in 1980, we continually strive to be one of the nation's best hospitals with the highest quality of care for our patients. We had an amazing team that has earned a reputation as a world-class medical center with a strong commitment to patient care. Northwestern Memorial Hospital is an integrated facility that provides patients with access to leading clinical trials. This has led to the development of some of Chicago's most advanced and innovative medical research and clinical facilities, located at the world's largest clinical research center for the treatment of chronic diseases.
The integrated inpatient and outpatient system of the hospital is organized by specialty, so that doctors can see patients more efficiently. In addition to medical care, each campus building has restaurants, retail stores, and pharmacies that are hand-picked for their ability to make healthy, local decisions. All patient rooms are designed to provide maximum natural light and city views. Private rooms have been shown to improve patient outcomes, promote communication between doctors and patients and their families, and provide added comfort and privacy for patients and their families during stressful times.
Northwestern Medicine prides itself on having four hospitals that are among the best in America for 2020-21, according to the US News & World Report. Northwestern Memorial Hospital was recognized in 2016 by the American College of Healthcare Architects for its pioneering design and enduring excellence in patient care, and also received an American Nurses' Credentialing Center. The first hospital to dedicate a room to each patient, it was founded at the beginning of the 20th century and continues to do so today.
The doctors on this list are sorted by the usual specialties, but we have also decided not to include doctors from specialties such as anesthesiology, where patients generally have little choice. We have appointed emergency doctors because people in emergencies are more likely to consult the list than go straight to the nearest emergency room. In the Chicago suburbs, there are a large number of doctors in the emergency room, and some of them may not appear on our list.
We only have a handful of doctors in our GP practice because most people already have a GP. We have called them "clean air doctors" because providing clean air can improve a person's health.
To create the list, Castle and Connolly contacted thousands of health professionals in the Chicago area, asking them to name the doctors they would entrust a family member with when they encounter a particular problem, and learn more about them. We have done this to give you more details to help you make your decision and to trust our listing guide, which presents one of the best family care providers based on kidlist and reader votes. The runners - above (below) - were first chosen among our top 5 and then invited to add a list of their favourite doctors to their list.
