5280 Magazine Names Over 100 Children's Colorado Physicians "Top Docs"


5280 magazine has released its 2014 list of Denver's Top Docs. We're proud to say that out of the 333 mentioned, 113 Children's Hospital Colorado physicians made the list.

The magazine’s annual list of outstanding Denver-area doctors is published in the August issue.

In compiling the Top Docs list, the magazine turned to Denver physicians for their opinion. For the past 20 years, 5280 has surveyed doctors and asked them, specialty by specialty, which metro-area physicians they would trust to treat themselves and their families.

The ballot is posted at 5280.com from mid-January to mid-March each year. Every metro-area doctor with a valid Colorado medical license can fill it out. Once the doctor hits “save,” the votes are entered into 5280's database and automatically tallied.

Congratulations to these doctors who have devoted their lives to pediatric medicine!
