Philadelphia magazine recognizes 92 Main Line Health physicians as "Top Doctors"

Main Line Health April 25, 2017 News Releases

Selected by their physician peers throughout the region, 92 outstanding Main Line Health physicians have been recognized by Philadelphia magazine’s May 2017 “Top Doctors” issue. Each year, the magazine’s “Top Doctors” issue includes a feature story focusing on the region’s biggest health topic. This year, the issue focuses on a “health report card” for Philadelphia and the surrounding counties, noting how they compare to each other and the national figures in major health-impact categories. This special section, which includes interviews with Norma Padron, PhD, MPH, associate director of the Main Line Health Center for Population Health Research at Lankenau Institute for Medical Research (LIMR), Madelaine Saldivar, MD, internal medicine specialist at Lankenau Medical Center, and Richard Ing, MD, bariatric surgeon and medical director of the Bariatric Center at Bryn Mawr Hospital, explores whether the Philadelphia region generally trends upward or downward in each health-related category.

“Each of the 92 physicians selected as Philadelphia magazine’s 2017 Top Doctors are extremely well-deserving of such recognition,” said Andrew Norton, MD, chief medical officer of Main Line Health. “I am incredibly proud of our entire team of more than 2,000 physicians across the system who are dedicated to providing high-quality care and a superior experience to our patients and community members.”
