It’s that time again!

Portland Monthly invites you to nominate your peers for our 15th annual guide to the Portland area’s Top Doctors, Physician Assistants, and Nurse Practitioners.


We’re soliciting peer nominations from every licensed doctor, registered nurse, and physician assistant in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties—more than 20,000 professionals from virtually every specialty.

AND A SPECIAL NOTE: This year, we'll publish the survey results for our Top Doctors, NPs, and PAs in our January 2019 issue. Our 2019 Top Complementary Medicine Providers will be announced in our February 2019 issue.

For Portland Monthly’s annual Top Doctors and Nurses list—2019 will be our 15th—we invite every licensed doctor, physician assistant, and registered nurse in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties to select as many medical specialties as they wish, and nominate up to four peers within that specialty.

Participants log in using their medical license number to vote, which we obtained from the respective licensing boards. The published list will include MDs, DOs, DPs, PAs, CRNAs, CNWs, and NPs—however, Registered Nurses are also eligible to vote.

After all the nominations are tallied, Portland Monthly narrows the list to the top 5 percent of vote getters in each field. Finally, our anonymous, independent panel of doctors, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners reviews and discusses each of the finalists individually, weighing their education, patient satisfaction surveys, communication skills, and other evidence- based criteria.
