59 UM Upper Chesapeake Health Physicians Named 2018 Top Docs by Baltimore Magazine

Fifty-nine doctors (8 of whom were named in multiple categories) who practice at UM Upper Chesapeake Health were recognized as "Top Doctors" in the November 2018 issue of Baltimore magazine.

The results are based on a Baltimore magazine survey of nearly 12,000 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.
