VOTE NOW: Are these the South Burnett's best doctors?

FINDING the right person to trust with the health of your family is something extremely important to our South Burnett readers.

Many were keen to give their family doctor the recognition they deserve when we put the call out to find out who was the South Burnett's best family doctor.

The care, expertise and passion required to ensure a speedy recovery from illness for the youngest to the eldest members of the family is what South Burnett residents value in a GP.

Reader Craig Davis said during his time working in the disability sector, he had met all of the South Burnett GPs.

"They are all amazing people and all deserve our praise for working in a rural area," Mr Davis said.

Our readers nominated 20 family doctors they believed deserve the title of the South Burnett's best family doctor.

Doctors were nominated from medical centres in Murgon, Kingaroy, Nanango, Wondai, Yarraman and Blackbutt.
