Looking for innovative, compassionate care that recognizes the specific needs of women?
University of Minnesota Physicians is pleased to announce that 74 of our physicians in 28 specialties and subspecialties were honored by Minnesota Monthly as part of the magazine’s annual “Best Doctors for Women” feature.
More than 509 Minnesota-based physicians were named in the latest issue of the magazine, which hits newsstands on Dec. 23. All were nominated by their peers for both their professional expertise and their attention to women’s medical needs.
The nomination of 74 physicians in 2014 represents a roughly 75 percent increase over 2013, when 42 University of Minnesota physicians across 18 specialties and subspecialties were recognized by Minnesota Monthly as “Best Doctors for Women.”
In addition to the nominations, Carrie Ann Terrell, MD, from the Women’s Health Specialists Clinic at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview, is pictured on the cover of Minnesota Monthly and quoted in the “Best Doctors for Women” feature.
When asked what advice Terrell would give to her female patients, she responded:
“Many women have a healthy fear of breast cancer but in actuality most of us will die from heart disease or complications of diabetes. These diseases don’t have the fund-raising initiatives or marketing that research for breast cancer has, despite their seriousness. Women need to know that doing everything they can to reduce their risk of heart disease will likely lengthen their lives. Coincidentally, many of these same lifestyle changes lessen their risk for cancer, too!”
