People are passionate about their health care providers. Every year during the nominations for our Favorite Docs, it is clear how much our readers love their doctors, dentists and other health care practitioners.
We received hundreds of nominations this year from parents for doctors, pediatric dentists, orthodontists, OB/GYNs, midwives, family practitioners, therapists and other health care practitioners nominated and recommended by parents. The list covers practices and doctors in Annapolis, Arnold, Bowie, Columbia, Glen Burnie, Laurel, Stevensville and other Maryland areas.
Their comments say it all.
“He is not only great with kids, but he's great with freaked-out parents. He always explains things calmly and in a way that makes you feel like he's actually listening to you, instead of just brushing off your concerns,” one reader commented.
“He is a rock star,” another wrote. “He is so knowledgeable, calm and caring. Best of all, he obviously loves what he does!”
Lastly, one wrote simply, “She helped save my life.”
People will travel long distances to stay with a trusted dentist and will do anything for a physician who takes a little extra time with them.
