    I live in the Lexington area and I would like to see that next year it would be considered as an area too. This area is getting bigger and better with a lot of good businesses. I love what you guys do and thanks to you I find a lot to do for me and my 4 year old!

    I love that you do this every year, however I wish you wouldn’t single out certain people in the medical industry. I work for two DDS and to just single one out over the other isn’t fair. They work as a team and to ask patients, community to single these people out isn’t right.
    I do love that you recognize all these people just wish if they work in a group setting you aknowledge all pediatricians, DDS, orthodontist, and anyone else involved with group offices.
    You did in the beginning.

      Dear Anonymous, we appreciate your concern and we honestly grappled with this decision a few years ago after receiving feedback from businesses on the other end of the spectrum who work as single professionals. We certainly recognize there is a team effort among many professional offices, but there are also some doctors, dentists, realtors, etc. who do not work as a team. Therefore, we felt it was unfair for the single professional to compete against offices and partnerships with two, three or sometimes more providers. We understand and recognize the strength in numbers, therefore we want to be able to give everyone a fair chance by listing providers as individuals. I hope that makes sense. Thanks for participating in our Choice Awards contests each year!
