More than 140 University of Maryland Medical Center Physicians Recognized As “Top Doctors” In Baltimore Magazine 2021 Survey

More than 300 physicians in 109 specialties and sub-specialties who provide care across University of Maryland Medical System hospitals have been recognized as "Top Doctors" in the November 2021 issue of Baltimore magazine. Of the doctors recognized, 141 practice at the System’s flagship academic hospital, the University of Maryland Medical Center, and are also on the faculty of the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has made the past year and a half an incredibly challenging time in healthcare,” said Mohan Suntha, MD, MBA, President and Chief Executive Officer of UMMS. "Having so many physicians recognized by their colleagues is a true testament to the incredible commitment and determination displayed on the frontlines every day across our System by staff who are delivering compassionate, high-quality healthcare.”

“This recognition of our academic medical staff highlights their dedication to our mission, which is to deliver superior health care,” said Bert W. O’Malley, MD, President and CEO of UMMC. “The power of the partnership between UMMC and the UM School of Medicine drives our unique brand of compassionate, discovery-based care.”

The “Top Doctors” 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 more than 130 specialties and subspecialties. Names of nearly 20,000 physicians were submitted, and only those who received the highest number of recommendations by their peers made the list.

UMMS hospitals represented in “Top Docs” include the University of Maryland Medical Center Downtown Campus; University of Maryland Medical Center Midtown Campus; University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center; University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center; University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center, University of Maryland Harford Memorial Hospital and University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopaedic Institute.
