UMMS Media Relations:

Doctors who practice at affiliated UMMS hospitals, all members of the University of Maryland School of Medicine faculty, were recognized as "Top Doctors" in the November 2016 issue of Baltimore magazine.

This issue marks another strong showing for the Medical System and the School of Medicine, with experts recognized across 92 specialties.

The results are based on a Baltimore magazine survey of nearly 10,000 physicians in the Baltimore area, including Baltimore City and the surrounding seven counties, asking where they would send a member of their family in dozens of specialties. Many doctors would choose to send their loved ones to us.

Our “top doctors” are listed below by specialty. Click on their names to learn more about them or to make an appointment.
