MILWAUKEE, Oct. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Of the 981 physicians in the state of Wisconsin

selected for the Best Doctors in AmericaŽ 2017-2018 list, nearly two-thirds are Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) faculty physicians and/or alumni.

"We are honored to employ a nationally recognized group of physicians who are committed to improving the health of people across our Wisconsin communities," said John R.
