Technical Information on the Voting Process
In January of this year, we asked our readers to vote on the best care providers in Lake Country in several categories. Below you’ll find the TOP three providers for each category, followed by the top nominees, all who received a significant number of reader votes.
We received nearly one thousand three hundred votes (wow!) and carefully parsed through the data to finalize the results including counting the write-ins. Each January, we will repeat the vote so if your favorites are not included, there is always next year. We are blessed to live in an area with such great practitioners and there was a wide field of contenders in each category so even if one isn’t listed in the top nominees doesn’t mean they are not amazing!
