Dr. Simms-Cendan is also director of international experiences at the medical school and leads the interprofessional education curriculum.
Dr. Diane Davey, professor, (at right) was honored as a top doctor in pathology. Dr. Davey also serves as associate dean for graduate medical education, with responsibilities for the college’s growing residency programs. She cares for patients at the Orlando VA Medical Center.

Dr. Mariana Dangiolo, assistant professor, (at right) was honored in geriatrics. Dr. Dangiolo practices family medicine and geriatrics at UCF Health’s Medical City location.
The awards are based on Best Doctors Inc., which conducts a national poll of physicians on the doctors to whom they would refer their patients for care. Best Doctors’ ballot and polling software are audited and certified by Gallup.
“These four UCF physicians combine excellence in patient care with a tremendous ability to teach the next generation of healthcare leaders,” said Dr. Jane Gibson, the UCF College of Medicine’s chair of clinical sciences. “We’re thrilled they are recognized for their commitment to improving the healthcare of our community now and in the future.”
