Most recently, our director of the Kovler Diabetes Center, Dr. Lou Philipson, became the newest member of the American Diabetes Association (ADA) Legal Advocacy Subcommittee. And in January 2012, Philipson was named one of Chicago Magazine’s “Top Doctors” alongside Kovler colleague Dr. Roy E. Weiss. Chosen by their peers, they were listed in the Endocrinology, Diabetes & Metabolism section and were among 494 top doctors listed in 60 specialties.

And in February 2012, Philipson and Weiss were also named to Super Doctors Magazineas the top doctors in Chicago. Only five percent of Chicago doctors are recognized by Super Doctors. The selections for the esteemed list are made by the research team at Super Doctors, which is a service of Key Professional Media, Inc. Each year, the research team conducts a rigorous multi-phase selection

process that includes a survey of doctors, independent evaluation of candidates by the research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area, and a good-standing and disciplinary check.

Since 2006, the University of Chicago Kovler Diabetes Center has been dedicated to excellence in clinical care, basic and clinical research, community engagement and education. Our mission is to deliver leading-edge care and develop innovative treatments and cures for individuals with diabetes throughout their lifespan. It’s both humbling and validating to see our doctors, including Philipson and Weiss, earn local, regional and national recognition and accolades for the work that we’re doing here at Kovler.
