BALTIMORE, MD (November 9) - Eleven doctors who are affiliated with Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital (MWPH) were recognized as "Top Doctors" in the November 2018 issue of Baltimore magazine.

These doctors include:

The results are based on a Baltimore magazine survey of thousands of physicians in the Baltimore area, including Baltimore City and the surrounding seven counties, asking where they would send a member of their family in hundreds of specialties. Many doctors would choose to send their loved ones to the medical team at MWPH.

"Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital is very proud of our 'Top Docs 2018,'" said Dr. Richard Katz, Chief Medical Officer, MWPH. "We're able to bring to our area the best of the best from our partner hospitals, University of Maryland Children's Hospital and Johns Hopkins Children's Center to join our own MWPH doctors to provide the highest level of pediatric health care. On a daily basis, all of our providers, including our nurse practitioners, devote themselves to the care of our complex patients and are able to collaborate across specialty lines of care that cannot be accomplished elsewhere."

Get to know the "top doctors" at MWPH, or call 410-367-2222 to make an appointment with some of these doctors at one of our pediatric clinics.
