Best Doctors in America 2020

Congratulations to our many physicians recognized on the 2020-2021 Best Doctors List. Washington University Physicians has more Best Doctors than any other physician group in St. Louis. Of the 1,280 St. Louis-area physicians on the list, one out of every three is a Washington University Physician. 

The Best Doctors in America is an online resource developed by Best Doctors, Inc. Best Doctors believes physicians are the most qualified to evaluate the experience and skill sets of other physicians. Physicians are asked "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your specialty, who would you choose?” Complete information about the selection process can be found at the Best Doctors web site. This list is also published every August by St Louis Magazine.
