Milwaukee (2/25/2011) - Thirteen physicians who see patients at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin-Fox Valley are listed in the 2010-2011 Best Doctors in America® database. A total of 177 physicians whose primary practice locations are Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin-Fox Valley, Children's Hospital clinics and Children's Medical Group are on the list.
The widely respected list, created by Best Doctors, Inc., results from exhaustive polling of over 50,000 physicians worldwide. Doctors in more than 40 specialties of medicine appear this year's list. In a confidential review, current listees answer the question, "If you or a loved one needed a doctor in your speciality, to whom would you refer them?"
Best Doctors has earned a worldwide reputation for reliable, impartial results by remaining totally independent. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the database and nor are they paid to provide their input. The list is a product of validated peer review, in which doctors who excel in their specialties are chosen. Only 5 percent of the doctors in American earn a spot on the list.

Ranking-eligible facilities were largely drawn from two membership categories of the National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions (NACHRI): freestanding children's hospitals, or "hospitals within a hospital" (large, multidisciplinary pediatric departments within a medical center). Several non-NACHRI members were added because of known expertise or at the recommendation of experts. The survey was created and administered by RTI International, the same respected research organization that collects the data and oversees the methodology behind the adult Best Hospitals rankings.
