Five Gillette Children’s Doctors Named Rising Stars

April 04, 2022

Five Gillette Children’s doctors were named rising stars by Mpls. St. Paul Magazine, after making the 2022 list of TOP DOCTORS: Rising Stars. The list includes doctors who have been fully licensed to practice for 10 years or less, and it recognizes the doctors' significant achievements in their first decade as professionals 

To create the 8th addition of this list, Mpls. St. Paul Magazine asked physicians to nominate the doctors they would go to if they or a loved one needed medical care. The list was whittled down to the top doctors through a multi-phase process that combined peer nominations and evaluations with independent research. Candidates were grouped into 46 specialties and evaluated on multiple factors, including, but not limited to, peer recognition, professional achievement, and disciplinary history. Doctors with the highest scores from each grouping were invited to serve on a blue-ribbon panel that evaluated the other candidates. Doctors cannot pay to be included on this list, nor are they paid to provide input. 

The doctors who received the highest point totals made the Mpls. St. Paul Magazine’s 2022 TOP DOCTORS: Rising Stars List. Congratulations to all our rising stars—and all our providers—for your dedication to serving kids who have complex brain, bone and movement conditions.
