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.

Chesapeake Family Favorite Docs 2016 logoTheir comments say it all.

Chesapeake Family July 2016 Fvorite Docs Issue Cover“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. Read on for our list of parent-recommended health care providers who come highly recommended by their patients. Those in large practices are listed under their practice names.
