Ridgeview physicians named ‘Top Doctors for Women’ by Minnesota Monthly

Four Ridgeview-associated physicians were recently named in Minnesota Monthly magazine’s listing of Top Doctors for Women. These physicians practice a specialty of medicine that primarily treats female patients or one in which the care of females differs from care for male patients; it is a subset of the magazine’s annual Top Doctors survey.

Ridgeview-affiliated physicians recognized in the 2017 Top Doctors for Women listing, listed by specialty category, include:

  • Sarah Freitas, MD, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Western OB/GYN, A Division of Ridgeview Clinics
  • Louise Ou-Yang, MD, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Fairview Clinics*
  • Lioudmila Sitnikova, MD, Urology, Urology Associates, Ltd.
  • Jeffry Twidwell, MD, Urology, Urology Associates, Ltd.

*Dr. Ou-Yang will be joining Western OB/GYN, A Division of Ridgeview Clinics, in September 2017.

To compile the list, Minnesota Monthly contacted 10,000 licensed physicians in the 11-county metro area and Olmstead County, asking them to name up to three doctors (other than themselves) in each specialty category. Physicians with the highest vote totals appear on this list.
