Providing you with the “creme de la creme” of shopping, restaurants, entertainment, services and beyond, the AV’s BEST Award recognizes local enterprises that deliver exceptional service. This year, in 2009, Dr. Ivan Thomas was distinguished as the AV’s BEST in plastic surgery for his unparalleled talent, patient care, and overall, customer satisfaction in Lancaster and the surrounding Antelope Valley. Among other factors, what makes the AV’s BEST Award so honorable is the award selection process.
The “AV’s BEST” special section counts the votes of their readers and takes account of their opinions. Every year, the Valley Press asks readers to share their thoughts about local businesses and cast a vote. The categories of enterprise range from banks and financial services to the best place to get your car checked for smog. What better way to make a satisfactory decision than with the recommendation and experience of hundreds of others just like you? Like a best friend with your best interests at heart, the AV’s BEST recognizes businesses, professions and services which dedicate their maximum effort in serving the customer.
This award confirms Dr. Thomas’ expertise, and proves that he truly does resonate among other plastic surgeons in the Lancaster and Palmdale areas. While certificates, degrees and diplomas are promising, awards like the AV’s BEST, which boast transparency and accountability, truly demonstrate a doctor’s qualification, skill and competence.
Many plastic surgery patients can be misled by publicity, “how famous” a doctor is, and their celebrity clientele. However, readers of the Valley Press are the best informed, most discerning shoppers, customers, and patients because of their access to genuine opinions and perspectives. Like testimonials, all the information provided is real, and straight from the heart. As opposed to basing your decision on superficial information, or giving into “the hype”, awards like the AV’s BEST, which are based on merit and first hand experience are not only reliable, but imperative in helping you choose the right plastic surgeon.
