Top cardiologists and cardiac surgeons in the Twin Cities and nation

University of Minnesota Physicians Heart is proud that 16 cardiologists and cardiac surgeons were named 2012 Top Doctors in Mpls. St. Paul Magazine and U.S. News & World Report. These talented physicians were nominated by physicians and registered nurses for the honor. It’s not about recognition for these top doctors, though; the bottom line is providing quality care for their patients.

Congratulations to the following physicians.
