UCF Pegasus Health’s Dr. Maria Cannarozzi has been named among the “Best Doctors in Orlando and America” for the second year in a row.
The “Best Doctors” lists are based on national surveys conducted by Best Doctors Inc. and Consumers’ CHECKBOOK, which survey thousands of physicians and ask, “To whom would you turn if you or a loved one needed medical care?”
Dr. Cannarozzi was recognized as a “Best Doctor” in internal medicine, the specialty she practices at UCF Pegasus Health. She was one of 650 doctors in 66 specialties to be honored in the Orlando area and one of the top 5 percent of doctors in America to be selected for the national honor.
Dr. Cannarozzi received her M.D. at the University of South Florida College of Medicine after achieving a B.S.N. at the University of Central Florida and her O.D. at the University of Houston College of Optometry. She joined the UCF College of Medicine in 2008.
In addition to internal medicine, she is also board-certified in pediatrics. Her research interests include adolescent medicine, women’s health, school performance, healthy weight and menopause symptom medicine.
“I am truly honored to be named a Best Doctor,” she said. “To me, caring for patients is a very personal experience. Each person has a unique story and a unique life. As a physician, I am privileged to have a very significant relationship with each of them.”
