Chicago Magazine has named five Loyola University Health System physicians to the 2014 Top Doctors List.
Two of the physicians are from Riverside; Dr. Christopher Loftus, neurological surgery, and Dr. Paul Kuo, surgery.
The other three physicians are from the La Grange area; Dr. David Hatch, pediatric urology, Dr. Elaine Adams, rheumatology, and Dr. Joseph Clark, medical oncology.
In compiling the list, the magazine turned to New York-based Castle Connolly Medical, a healthcare research and information company, that annually conducts a nationwide survey of all licensed physicians.
Physicians are asked to nominate as many as 10 doctors they consider the best in their own specialty, and as many as three doctors in other specialties. Such factors as education, hospital appointment, board certifications and bedside manner are considered.
Castle Connolly received more than 100,000 nominations during 2013.
