31 CharterCARE Doctors Recognized as “Top Docs” In Rhode Island



We are proud to announce that thirty-one CharterCARE physicians have been named as Top Docs in Rhode Island Monthly’s annual survey and magazine.

This year, 235 physicians across 53 specialties were selected based on votes of their peers around the state. For that reason, it’s a special recognition and allows them to stand out among their fellow physicians. Of course, we know that all the physicians and specialists associated with CharterCARE are true professionals committed to clinical quality and patient safety.

We salute the following award winners and thank all of the CharterCARE medical staff members for their outstanding care and leadership every day.
