On Friday, October 25, Dr. Sebestyen received the award for best OB/GYN (patient’s choice) at the Austin Birth Awards. This is the third year in a row she has received this honor and we’re so proud to share the news! A big thank you to all of our patients for supporting her nomination and voting for Dr. Sebestyen. This type of recognition is true confirmation that our efforts are appreciated and valued in our community.

The Austin Birth Awards feature a list of qualified professionals in many service areas related to birth and parenting. All finalists were nominated by those in the community who have personally experienced great service and outcomes from birth related service providers. This year nominations were accepted from June 1, 2013 through July 15, 2013 and final voting on the top four finalists ended on October 15, 2013 at midnight. The 3rd Annual Awards Ceremony & Gala took place on October 25, 2013 at the Carver Museum Theater & Reception Area at 7p.m.

The Austin Birth Awards are a project of the Get Babied Foundation and the Central Texas Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies Coalition. Together, their mission is to recognize Austin area birth professionals that are going out of their way to provide quality care for the women of Austin. A result of the yearly poll is a list of the best referrals for pregnancy care in Austin, selected and voted on by real people to determine the best and brightest mother-friendly birth professionals the city has to offer.

Another highlight for our practice was cheering on St. David’s North Austin Medical Center, where our OBGYN North patients deliver, as they received the award for the best labor and delivery unit in Austin.
