The latest Baltimore magazine list of “Top Docs” recognizes physicians from the Pulmonary and Critical Care Associates of Baltimore (PCCAB) as leading their specialties. Six of the seven pulmonologists named “Top Docs” are PCCAB practitioners, as are two of the three sleep medicine specialists and six of the twelve critical care physicians.
In all, nine PCCAB physicians are recognized as being the best in their fields. Drs. Linda Barr, Jason Birnbaum, George Pyrgos, Salim Rizk, Hasan Shakoor and Dr. Peter Sloane are recognized as the top pulmonologists in the region. Drs. Barr, Birnbaum, Pyrgos, Rizk and Shakoor are also recognized as the best intensivists in Baltimore, alongside Dr. Mitchell Schwartz. Drs. Brian Bohner and Jacques Conaway are recognized as the top sleep medicine physicians.
“Our physicians are deeply committed to providing the highest-quality patient care,” said Brian Bohner, Managing Partner of PCCAB. “We are proud to see their expertise recognized by Baltimore magazine and peer physicians from across the region.”
Just five percent of doctors in Greater Baltimore are named “Top Docs”. The listing culminates a nine-month selection process in which thousands of physicians are polled to determine which doctors are the best of the best in each specialty. The process is overseen by Baltimore magazine in conjunction with three independent physician advisors.
PCCAB practitioners are frequent honorees on the list. Drs. Birnbaum, Bohner, Conaway, Pyrgos, Rizk, Schwartz and Sloane have all been recognized in previous “Top Docs” listings, as has PCCAB pulmonologist Dr. Buescher.
The full selection methodology and complete list of “Top Docs” is available in the November 2018 issue of Baltimore magazine.
