There are so many wonderful health care providers in the Lowcountry. We truly feel blessed to live among them. Those who garnered the most votes by their constituents, patients and colleagues are in the pages of this magazine. Congratulations to all who won! We also asked some questions of many of the winners. We hope you enjoy reading their responses. The photo shoot we planned went off without a hitch. Thank you to all who attended. We also want to thank Dish & Design for providing our “model” winners with bites to eat during the shoot. Cambria Hotel in Mount Pleasant hosted this event, and we want to thank them for their hospitality. And Jenn Cady, our talented photographer, did an excellent job of capturing the essence of our health care community. We also highlighted primary care in this issue. The general and family practices are some of the most important in health care. They see their patients regularly and are usually the first line of defense. We covered stories about primary care as it relates to seniors, telehealth, basic first aid and direct primary care. Please also take note of some of our other interesting stories about service dogs, bipolar disorder, LGBTQ health care and another valiant “unique case” story. We want to take the time to thank our team – our editor, graphic designer and wonderful writers – for making this issue a success. We also want to thank our sales team for working hard on distribution and making the magazine accessible to you, our loyal readers. And we couldn’t do any of these stories without our incredible sources. Thank you all for lending us your expertise. We hope you enjoy this issue of HealthLinks.
