Congratulations to our Brown Medicine Top Docs

Rhode Island Monthly magazine asked licensed medical doctors and doctors of osteopathic medicine throughout the state to vote for physicians they would trust to care for their own family and friends. A third party research firm conducted an online ballot survey for collecting, vetting and tallying the votes. Rhode Island Monthly then narrowed the list to doctors in the top 16% of vote getters who received at least nine votes in each category. The result is a list of the 244 best physicians in Rhode Island as voted by their peers.
