Doctors who practice at affiliated UMMS hospitals were recognized as "Top Doctors" in the November 2017 issue of Baltimore magazine.

This issue marks another strong showing for the Medical System and the University of Maryland School of Medicine, with experts recognized across 93 specialties.

The results are based on a Baltimore magazine survey of nearly 13,000 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.
