Top Doctors 2011

Our 15th Edition

For this special edition of Top Doctors, we took a close look at our list throughout the years, which represents some of the best minds in Twin Cities medicine.

The list has certainly grown—our first edition in 1992 included 250 doctors, while this year’s features more than 500—but some things remain the same, including one of this year’s cover models, Dr. Barbara Bowers, who appeared on our first Top Doctors cover in 1992.

But the most astonishing common thread throughout the years is the 30 doctors who have appeared on the list every time we’ve published it. We’ve dubbed them our Honor Roll, and for this issue we spoke to many of them about their careers, their specialties, and what being a doctor means to them.

In the process, we found a talented group of specialists who delight in their work and have a passion for doing what doctors do best: caring for their patients.
