No doubt, the hospitals in our region have a lot of great doctors. You’ll be happy to learn that your insurance company does too. Two Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota (BCBSND) employees have been named by U.S. News and World Reports as two of “America’s Top Doctors” in the region.
BCBSND Interim Chief Medical Officer Dr. Eunah Fischer and Medical Director of Behavioral Health Dr. Kenneth Fischer have been included in the U.S. News and World Reports listing of top doctors in this area in their areas of specialty.
Dr. Eunah Fischer was listed among the top area doctors in internal medicine and was also was recognized for her special expertise in geriatric medicine.
Dr. Kenneth Fischer was recognized for being a top local doctor in child and adolescent psychiatry and his expertise in anxiety and mood disorders, depression, ADHD and family/relationship issues.
“We are so fortunate to have the Fischers with us,” says Paul von Ebers, BCBSND’s president and CEO. “They are top in their field and to have them working on the important work we do in the area of medical management simply solidifies that we are doing the right thing, with the right people in place.”
The U.S. News and World Reports list, which was released two weeks ago, is based on a peer-nomination process and nominations were reviewed by a physician-led research team from Castle Connolly, a New York City-based company. Doctors were not allowed to nominate themselves.
