Dr. Levin named a 2021 “Top Doctor”

Each year, after a nine-month-long peer survey, the medical community of Baltimore recognizes the top 5% of doctors as the best of the best. The annual “Top Doctors” is a prestigious honor awarded to the experts in their field. The published list gives the inhabitants of Baltimore much-needed information on the most accomplished, skilled, innovative, and leading doctors who are highly sought after. This year our own Dr. Amanda Levin was named Top Doctor 2021 in the Pediatric Critical Care category.
