KP Leads Magazine’s Annual ‘Top Docs’ List
January 19, 2018
The news is out: Kaiser Permanente Northwest topped this year’s Portland Monthly “Top Docs” list, with more than NWP doctors on the list than any other health-care organization or physician group in the state of Oregon!
For the past 14 years, the magazine has featured a peer-vetted list of the city’s best physicians, NPs, and PAs in family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, and all surgical and medical specialties, A to Z. To create the list each year, Portland Monthly asks doctors, PAs, NPs, and RNs (including midwives and CRNAs) in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas counties whom they would entrust to provide care of their loved ones. Each provider can nominate up to four clinicians in each medical specialty.
This year, 148 NWP physicians and 7 PAs made the list – that’s 155 “top clinicians” in our region. (The magazine will feature the city’s top nurse practitioners in a special edition this summer.)
More than 18,000 votes were submitted across 78 medical specialties – a 50 percent increase in participation over last year. This year’s list represents the top 5 percent of the 18,000 providers who were nominated.
