CRL docs named Mpls-St. Paul Top Doctors

MINNEAPOLIS, June 16, 2016 — Five Consulting Radiologists, Ltd. (CRL) docs are mentioned in Mpls-St.Paul Magazine’s 2016 Top Doctors issue on newsstands now.

Lisa J. Schneider, MD, Thomas Ibach, MD, and Geoffrey Raile, MD are listed among 864 other physicians in over 45 specialties nominated by their peers for this great honor.

Yasha Kayan, MD and Robert Yost, MD have been selected among Mpls-St. Paul’s 2016 Top Doctor Rising Stars Edition. The list selected 318 physicians in 44 specialties who have been licensed ten years or less to be then evaluated on a myriad of factors. These factors include professional achievement, review by an expert panel, extensive research, and disciplinary history.

Only doctors who acquired the highest total points from the surveys, research, and blue-ribbon panel review are selected for this list.

The CRL Marketing Department had a chance to sit down with a few of these radiologists for some quick Q & A:

What do you enjoy most about your job?
Lisa J. Schneider, MD: I enjoy the impact I have on the arc of patient care. I like putting together a big puzzle by peering in on the inside of people.

Yasha Kayan, MD: I like having the opportunity to support patients and their families through critical neurovascular conditions, and being able to contribute to advancing the field of neurointervention.

Robert Yost, MD: I enjoy providing quality service to our patients and clinicians.

What traits do you look for in a “Top Doctor”?
LJS:  We were all taught the “A’s” in medical school: ability, affability, accessibility or availability, and a good sense of humor doesn’t hurt.

YK:  A “Top Doctor” provides the latest evidence-based medicine in a way that places the needs of patients and their families first.

RY:  I look for a strong patient advocate.

Dr. Schneider added “(As a radiologist) Occasionally, I like to crawl out of the dark room (reading room) and let people know that there is a doctor helping your doctor. That doctor is a radiologist who puts together a large and complicated puzzle called the human body to help your doctor help you.”

CRL is extremely proud of all of our radiologists who consistently are providing quality care to our patients and providers each day. Congratulations again to our 2016 Top Docs!
