BALTIMORE, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second consecutive year, four urologists from Chesapeake Urology Associates, PA have been named to the Super Doctors® 2012 List for the Maryland/Washington, D.C., area. These physicians are among just five percent in the region to be honored with inclusion on the Super Doctors 2012 List.
Each year, Key Professional Media undertakes a rigorous multi-phase selection process that includes a survey of doctors, independent evaluation of candidates by the research staff, a peer review of candidates by practice area and a good-standing and disciplinary check. As a part of this evaluation, physicians are asked to consider what doctors in the area they would choose for their own care. The awards come on the heels of six urologists and two urologic oncologists from Chesapeake Urology Associates being named to the prestigious Top Docs list by Baltimore Magazine.
"With these consistent honors by our peers, we are proud to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our physicians," says Sanford J.
