FPA_Best_Doctors_2014Congratulations to the 267 independent FPA, Fairview-employed and University of Minnesota Physicians named among the 2016 Best Doctors in the October 2016 Minnesota Monthly. A survey group contacted licensed and active physicians statewide to ask in an online, peer-review survey which physicians across Minnesota they would recommend, other than themselves.
