A Special Thanks to Our Patients for Nominating & Awarding Dr. Sicat to
                The 2013, 2017, 2018, 2019 Best Bedside Manner Awards


"Medical expertise & compassionate care should always go hand-in-hand when it comes to treating patients. Going to the doctor can be an unnerving experience for many people. Professionals who incorporate The Golden Rule
into their practice philosophy are ones that stand out in people’s minds for the better.

The 2013 Best Bedside Manner Awards, presented by OurHealth magazine, honors medical providers who were voted by the local community for kindness, empathy, and attentiveness - attributes that go a long way in gaining a patient's confidence.

The Voting Process: During May and June 2013, commercials announcing the 2013 Best Bedside Manner Awards and how to submit votes for medical providers across nearly 60 specialties, aired on OurHealth’s
television media partner’s station, CBS 6, WTVR-TV. Print ads were also included in OurHealth’s May 2013 magazine. Votes were submitted by the public through an online submission form June 1st - July 15th 2013, during which time nearly 10,000 votes were cast." --- Our Health Magazine 12/13 (2017, 2018, 2019)
