Kathryn Leiter:

Dr. Robert Ishak, an internal medicine physician with Upper Chesapeake Primary Care, has been elected a Fellow of the American College of Physicians, the society of internists. The distinction recognizes achievements in internal medicine, the specialty of adult medical care.

Dr. Ishak was elected upon the recommendation of peers and the review of ACP’s Credentials Subcommittee. He may now use the letters “FACP” after his name in recognition of this honor.

According to the American College of Physicians website, "Being an FACP is a distinction earned from colleagues who recognize your accomplishments and achievements over and above the practice of medicine. The most important considerations for ACP Fellowship are excellence and contributions made to both medicine and to the broader community in which the internist lives and practices."

Dr. Ishak is board certified in internal medicine and serves patients in Bel Air. He received his medical degree from New York Medical College. Dr. Ishak served two internships, one at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia and another one at St. Vincent Hospital and Medical Center in New York, where he completed his residency. Dr. Ishak is a member of the Board of Directors for the University of Maryland Community Medical Group, and serves as the medical director of Occupational Health Services at UM Upper Chesapeake Health.
