Portland Monthly magazine has released their list of the top medical professionals in the Portland area for 2017. There were over 12,000 votes from local doctors, nurses and physician's assistants this year. Three of our Emergency Medicine faculty were selected to represent the very best in their respective fields.
Using a secure online survey system, Portland Monthly solicited peer nominations from every licensed doctor and registered nurse in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties. Participants logged in with their medical license number and were asked to nominate up to three names in each medical specialty; we specifically asked that they consider peers to whom they would entrust their own families' care. After the votes were tallied, Portland Monthly compiled a list of the top vote recipients in each specialty and confirmed that they were all certified to practice in their fields by their respective medical licensing board. Next, we gathered an independent, voluntary, and anonymous panel of doctors and nurse practitioners representing a range of local hospitals and private clinics to assess each finalist by their accomplishments, education, patient satisfaction surveys, and other evidence-based criteria.
