The Importance of Being Named A “Top Doc”
The title of “Top Doc” is awarded by Baltimore Magazine to doctors by peer selection, which reflects an appreciation and recognition of a doctor’s professional experience and unique skill sets. It is a distinction of high quality in the medical community, determined by other doctors who know the demands and challenges of the field.
Being named of Baltimore’s Top Docs for the third consecutive year is a very humbling experience for me. I am deeply appreciative of this particular award, as the voting is conducted by my peers in the field of medicine. Winning this award for the third time reinforces the knowledge that my fellow doctors have confidence in my skills and experience in plastic surgery.
Considering how this affects my current and future patients, I think the title “Top Doc of 2013” shows that in addition to having a history of running a successful practice, that high quality of service has been maintained. The community continues to recognize the hard work I invest into my practice and my patients on a daily basis, which amplifies my drive to strive for excellence in patient care – just as I have been doing since the beginning of my career.
In my next blog post, I will detail how prospective patients can use the list of Baltimore Top Docs in their search for a physician.
