Baptist Health Medical Group physicians have been named to Louisville Magazine’s Top Docs 2019 list, featured in the magazine’s August issue.
The doctors named to the list are chosen by their peers, based on surveys the magazine sent to members of the Greater Louisville Medical Society asking them the question: If you or a member of your family were in need of medical care or treatment, who among the Louisville-area doctors would you choose to provide medical care in the following specialties?
Congratulations to the Baptist Health Medical Group doctors who were top-ranked in the categories listed.
When you’re looking for a recommendation for a doctor, who better to get that endorsement from than other physicians? After all, they know what it takes to deliver exceptional care.

All doctors named to the list received multiple mentions from their peers. Those surveyed could list up to five doctors, in order of preference, in the primary-care categories of family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics-gynecology, and pediatrics.
For the specialists, respondents were asked to list up to three doctors. The points were then tallied to compile the listings that follow, with top-ranking physicians listed in each specialty. The doctors are listed alphabetically within each category, and the number of doctors listed in specialties varies according to the number of doctors receiving mentions in each field.

Our large, multi-specialty network is made up of physicians and advanced practice clinicians who provide compassionate, patient-centered care at every Baptist Health location.
