Portland Monthly magazine has released their list of the top medical professionals in the Portland area for 2019. There were votes from local doctors, nurses and physician's assistants this year.

Selection Methodology

Using a secure online survey system, Portland Monthlysolicited peer nominations from every licensed doctor, physician assistant, and registered nurse in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties. Participants logged in with their medical license number and nominated up to four names in each medical specialty; we specifically asked to whom they would entrust their own families’ care. After tallying the votes, Portland Monthly compiled a list of the top vote recipients in each specialty. We then confirmed that all nominees are currently certified to practice in their field by their respective medical licensing board and have not been subject to recent disciplinary action in Oregon. Next, we convened an independent, voluntary, and anonymous panel of doctors, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners representing local hospitals and clinics to assess each finalist by their accomplishments, education, patient satisfaction surveys, and other criteria.
