For Immediate Release October 21, 2020

Baltimore Magazine recognized several physicians providing care at the University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute as "Top Doctors" of 2020.

The magazine's roster is notable because it's based on a nine-month-long survey of thousands of physicians in the Baltimore metro region. Physicians were asked where they would send members of their own family for specialized care. The list encompasses the best of the best doctors in 129 specialties. Only about six percent of all physicians in the area receive the peer support to make this list.
