Congratulations to the 97 UM St. Joseph Medical Center physicians who have been recognized as "Top Doctors" in the November 2021 issue of Baltimore magazine.

The results are based on Baltimore magazine's annual survey of roughly 14,000 physicians in the Baltimore region who were asked to name the best doctors in 129 subspecialties. Nearly 20,000 names were submitted, and only those who received the highest number of recommendations by their peers made the list, according to the magazine.
