Two Northwest Community Healthcare (NCH) physicians have been named to the 2018 "Chicago's Top Cardiologists" list published by Chicago Magazine. The list is a roundup of 138 doctors representing five specialties, including Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cardiovascular Disease, Interventional Cardiology, Pediatric Cardiology and Thoracic & Cardiac Surgery. Those who made the list were endorsed by their peers as the best in the six-county metropolitan area.
Our NCH Medical Group doctors on the list include:
- John R. Onufer, M.D., Cardiac Electrophysiology - atrial fibrillation; catheter ablation; pacemakers and defibrillators
- Brian H. Albert, M.D., Cardiovascular Disease – echocardiography; coronary artery disease; preventive cardiology
"It is such a pleasure and an honor to work so closely with both Dr. Onufer and Dr. Albert,” says Bonnie DeGrande, R.N. M.S., Executive Director, Cardiovascular Services and Neuroscience. "They are key members of a dedicated team that enable NCH to continue to be a preeminent leader in cardiovascular services in our community."
Doctors cannot pay to appear on the Top Docs List or nominate themselves, according to chicagomag.com. The list was compiled by Castle Connolly Medical, a healthcare research and information company in New York City. William Liss-Levinson, CCM’s chief strategy and operations officer believes “physicians are the best judges of other physicians’ clinical excellence,” the website stated.
The list appears in the June 2018 issue of Chicago Magazine.
