MedStar Union Memorial Top Doctors


MedStar Union Memorial Hospital is proud to announce its physicians that have been identified by Baltimore magazine’s much anticipated and highly coveted “Top Docs” 2017 list.

Each year, Baltimore magazine publishes the annual list of "Baltimore’s Top Doctors." The physicians honored with this title are chosen by their peers who respond to survey questions asking what physician would you send your own family member to.

Nearly 10,000 physicians in the region were surveyed for this year’s list, including an online poll of physicians to augment the mailed survey responses. Baltimore magazine then publishes the top physicians named in each of the specialties.

Congratulations to our Top Doctors!
