For Immediate Release October 22, 2019

More than 125 doctors who provide care to patients at the University of Maryland Medical Center downtown and midtown campuses have been recognized as "Top Doctors" in the November 2019 issue of Baltimore magazine. All of the recognized physicians are also faculty members of the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

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.
