DCAM Building

More than 150 University of Chicago Medicine and University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's physicians are recognized for being at the forefront in their fields in Chicago magazine's first Top Doctors and Top Doctors for Moms and Kids list of 2021.

While these lists don't include all types of medicine, they do highlight doctors treating cancer, digestive diseases, neurology, pediatrics, obstetrics and other specialties.

The Chicago-area doctors named were selected by their peers and through consideration of factors such as clinical excellence, bedside manner, education and board certification. Data are collected and analyzed by the research company Castle Connolly Medical.
