To come up with this year’s list of the city’s top doctors, Baltimore magazine asked 5,500 physicians who they would choose to send their family members to see in each of 86 specialties.
The final list includes eight UMBC graduates—several of whom have made the list before—who were recognized by their peers for the quality of care they provide.
Biological sciences majors who made the list include Fouad Abbas ’82 (gynecologic oncology), Mary “Tessie” Behrens ’80 (nephrology), Robert Donegan ’87 (hematology/oncology) and Stephen George ’80 (pediatric rheumatology).
Michael Lantz ’85, biochemistry and molecular biology, was recognized in the category of obstetrics/fetal medicine.
Psychology majors Lauren Schnaper ’71 (breast surgery), Michael Shear ’78 (physical medicine/rehabilitation) and Francisco Ward ’87 (physical medicine/rehabilitation) were also honored.
