Dr. Svetlana Zaydman Featured in Minnesota Monthly’s Top Doctors Issue

Valley Medical and Wellness’ own Dr. Svetlana Zaydman is featured in a two-page spread in the September/October issue of Minnesota Monthly magazine. This is the magazine’s annual Top Doctors issue and both Dr. Zaydman and Dr. Ashwin George are listed as Top Doctors in their respective categories of Pain Management and Addiction Medicine. 

Dr. Zaydman’s Journey to Valley Medical and Wellness

Dr. Zaydman is featured in a two-page article focusing on managing chronic conditions. The article outlines her journey from working in a clinic with a medicine-first approach to founding her own clinic, with Dr. George, with a care model that combines osteopathic manipulation, nutrition, lifestyle modification, physical therapy, mental health support, and medication management.

“I decided I wanted to do it my way,” she told the interviewer.

A Multifaceted Approach to Treating Chronic Pain

Dr. Zaydman explained that a care model that facilitates time, trust, and connection between the patient and provider is essential for generating successful outcomes.

“Pain is the symptom of something,” she said in the article. “The most important thing a doctor can do is to understand what’s actually causing the pain. I teach my providers to use all the tools in the toolbox to understand a patient. With this understanding comes the best treatment plan. One size doesn’t fit all.”

Minnesota Monthly Top Doctors

Valley Medical and Wellness is proud to have Dr. Zaydman showcased in this important issue of Minnesota Monthly magazine and to have the opportunity to tell her story to a wide audience.

The 2022 Top Doctors list is based on a survey of more than 10,000 licensed Minnesota physicians who nominated peers based on their professional expertise. Being named as one of Minnesota Monthly’s Top Doctors is a high honor and one that Dr. Zaydman and Dr. George have worked hard to achieve.
