Chicago Magazine’s “Top Docs” Includes 10 RIC Physicians

Top DocsChicago, IL - Margaret Roberts, MD, who joined the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago’s staff in 2010, was among RIC physicians named to Chicago magazine's bi-annual “Top Doctors” issue in January 2012. The rankings also appeared in U.S News & World Report.

Dr. Roberts joins nine other RIC physicians (see list below), who have been included on the list for several years. The Chicago magazine cover story is dedicated to the results of independent research firm Castle Connolly's annual physician-directed survey, which surveys physicians from around the country on who they believe to be the “top doctors” in 60 different specialties.

Dr. Roberts, whose clinical practice is based in the pelvic floor clinic on the 3rd floor of the main hospital, previously was in private practice as a partner in Illinois Urogynecology.

Ten total RIC physicians were named to this list, including:

Castle Connolly's Top Doctors™ selection process begins with surveys of physicians and health care professionals. Each year, Castle Connolly surveys thousands of physicians and other health care professionals and asks them to identify excellent doctors in every specialty in their region and throughout the nation. Then a physician-led research team carefully reviews the credentials of every physician being considered for inclusion in Castle Connolly Guides®, magazine articles and website. The review includes, among other factors, scrutiny of medical education, training, hospital appointments, administrative posts, professional achievements, and malpractice and disciplinary history.
