Five Suburban Imaging radiologists rated best by other doctors

Jan 16, 2015

Congratulations to five Suburban Imaging radiologists who made Consumers’ CHECKBOOK magazine’s Top Doctors in the Twin Cities Area.

Dr. Ellen Abeln, Dr. Aaron Binstock, Dr. Kevin Henseler and Dr. Jeffrey Lukens made the list in the radiology-diagnostic category, along with 18 other radiologists.

Dr. Bradley Close was named in the radiology-therapeutic category, with 10 other physicians also listed.

"In preparing our Top Doctors list, we surveyed roughly 375,000 physicians [nationwide]," reported the magazine. "We asked each surveyed doctor to tell us which specialists, in 35 different fields, he or she 'would consider most desirable for care of a loved one.' Our list of doctors contains the names of physicians who were mentioned multiple times by other physicians in their communities."

The Top Doctors list can be found in the Fall 2014/Winter 2015 issue. For more information on CHECKBOOK magazine, a nonprofit, please visit their website.
