Top Docs 2018!



Dodda   Lubben


Kudos! Jackson Park Hospital (JPH) is very proud to salute the achievements and longtime service of two outstanding physicians who have each served patients at JPH for over 35 years. Today, we salute two of the city’s finest, in the specialty area of Family Medicine, Drs. Lakshmi P. Dodda and Georgia D. Lubben. Yes, the city’s finest according to ChicagoMagazine, January 2018 issue titled “Top Doctors”! They were selected along with 591 physicians throughout the city and collar suburbs and endorsed by their peers as the best in the six county metropolitan area.

How do you find the best physicians?This Top Doctors list was compiled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., a health care research and information company founded in 1991 by a former medical college board chairman and president to help guide consumers to America’s top doctors and top hospitals. Castle Connolly’s established nomination survey, research, screening and selection process, under the direction of an MD, involves many hundreds of thousands of physicians as well as academic medical centers, specialty hospitals and regional and community hospitals across the nation. Castle Connolly’s physician led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Its online nominations process is open to all licensed physicians in America. They are able to nominate physicians in any medical specialty and in any part of the country, as well as indicate whether the nominated physicians are, in their opinion, among the best in their region or in the nation in their specialty. The doctor’s educational and professional experience is carefully screened before final selection is made among those physicians most highly regarded by their peers. After identifying the top doctors in America, Castle Connolly provides consumers with detailed information about their education, training and special expertise in its paperback guides and online directories and in national and regional magazine “Top Doctors” features. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled. Physicians selected for Chicago’s “Top Doctors” may also appear online at or in conjunction with other Castle Connolly Top Doctors databases online and in print.

Congratulations again to two of the finest! We, at JPH are very happy for you both! Another very important point about both doctors, they were medical residents in the Jackson Park Hospital Family Practice Residency Program and have been committed ever since to their patients and the hospital.
