All Medical Schools rate themselves against the Cleveland Clinic at Case Western Reserve in Cleveland Ohio. They have pioneered many medical procedures to include heart and transplant surgeries. Every doctor who has attended school there are considered outstanding in their fields.

We are lucky to have so many great hospitals and different cities they exist in.

Any one of these will have excellent care - some will outscore others in speficic specialties but probably the most prominent would be in no particular order:

Baltimore
NYC
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Boston
Minneapolis
Cleveland
Houston
Chicago
LA
